Unmade...



I haven't properly made my bed in weeks.
Usually when I do that, it's a sign of me being too busy, time spent working rather than time spent at home.

The same can be said for recent weeks, although, I've had a couple of days off here and there for the holidays.
This time feels different.
It's like, if I don't make it, I won't have to lay in it.
Do you catch what I'm throwing down?

bugger making beds. I've not done it in YEARS, mostly 'cuz Mom made me. Fugghitt. I make the bed when either A) the sheets are fresh or B) the kids have pulled all the sheets OFF the bed and they need to be refitted.

I fully believe that a made bed is a sign of impending mental collapse. Besides, all your sweat and all those microscopic lil' buggies that live on your dead skin are merely SEALED IN when the bed is made. Then they have allll day in the humid dark to eat your skin and frump up a whole new GENERATION of lil' micro buggies. DON'T LET 'EM, PEOPLE! AIR OUT THAT BED! DON'T MAKE IT!

My thoughts on bedmaking are well documented. It's a complete waste of time. And if company is coming over, just close the bedroom door. Done and done.

I disagree. My bed never feels clean if I climb into it when it's unmade. I love neat and tidy sheets and blankets.

I believe that you need to suffocate the little microscopic buggies by straightening the covers and making the bed. Besides, if you're not in the bed, how can it be humid?

Starve them of air and light! Make your bed!

I'm with Big O. with regard to mental collapse. Aside from tugging the corners back down to tighten up the fitted sheet, fuck it. My wife bought the whole bed set (7 pillows of various sizes our bed can look like a store display, but all the "extra" pillows have permanent residence on the window seat.) Can you imagine having to make then unmake the bed? No it is just crazy.

Hey, we'd make a good couple. My refridgerator is empty! Got a pic on my blog. Messy bed, empty fridge...what are we doing all day long...
