The joy of sleeping in pairs



Before I went to bed, Mr. Hall said, "Can you turn on my side of the bed? You know I like it boiling."

We have an electric blanket underneath our bottom sheet. He likes his side on HIGH HEAT. It irritates me. I don't like heat from the bottom. I sleep with my side OFF. But, I think Mr. Hall keeps his side on HIGH HEAT to keep me on my side of the bed.

Yah see, I'm a bed hog. I will push Mr. Hall to the edge and steal blankets. I've pushed him off the bed before. It's involuntary though. Happens in my sleep. But with his side cranked to HIGH BOILING HEAT, I stay on my side-the warm and toasty side.
It's like a repellent.

Then, last night, I woke up with my face smooshed against the sheet. My cheek was burning from the heat. I was on my belly, feeling pinned. Somehow I had wedged myself underneath Mr. Hall, his back on my back. I was like a spatula trying to flip a pancake. And it was so hot, sweat was pouring into my eyes. I promptly woke him up to get off me. :)

hee heee hee

le sigh.

Mr. Hall has a three week trip coming up. Out of state.

le sigh.

I think I'll keep his side of bed on and put a body pillow there.

I really don't like sleeping alone. :)

I have this theory that all women are secretly beg hogs, for what ever reason.....I know my wife is.

this is exactly why i forced my wife to get a king sized bed a few years ago.

we can easily stash 2-3 other people in there and never see them.

Mrs. Hall said...

L7: maybe soo . . .

Slyde: yeah, I thought about a king bed. too effing big, cloggs up a room. maybe some day though, when we get a huge house :)

Well I for one really enjoyed the post you took down...

Just sayin'...

Mrs. Hall said...

Which one was that?

Brown said...

Ah yes, one of my life's greatest paradoxes; I love to cuddle up, but can't stand being the victim of bed hogs. The heating blanket sounds like a good idea, but I'm more inclined to use spikes or even biological warfare. You know, I like to make sure my point is clearly received.

Mrs. Hall said...

Yeah, i don't know. i don't think spikes would be effective in deterring my bed hogginess.
