My husband is really particular about his pillows. He absolutely insists that they be made of some kind of material and some kind of stuffing. Luckily, all pillows are made this way, but not all pillows are made equally. I think we all know this very well. On our bed are four pillows that are meant to sleep on and seven for decoration. Out of the four that can be slept on, there is only one that really passes his test. There are a couple that look and feel alike to me. If I happen to go to sleep with his favorite pillow before he does, he doesn't pull it out from under my head (usually) but will frown himself to sleep.
He loves his pillow. It's like his homeboy.
|I might get one of these shirts made for him. For real.|
What makes a particular pillow someone's homeboy? You know...the pillow you want with you wherever you go. The pillow that is always by your side when it's time to sleep. The pillow that has your back in a fight. The pillow that will go with you to the movies. The pillow for which you've developed a special handshake. The pillow you don't hand out first when guests come over. You try to give them a nice pillow, but you'll never hand them your homeboy pillow.
What is so special about your homeboy pillow?
Well, I can't answer that. The answer to that question is between you and your homeboy. I can tell you that pillows fall into five major categories, though. Trust me. I have a bachelor's degree in Pillowology from The Mattress Firm University (Gooooo Boxsprings!!) and I'm working on my Master's at The Mattress Giant Institute (Goooo Tempurpedics!!) right now.
#1 The Boulder Pillow
#2 The Paper Pillow
This one was folded and shaped so much by this dude that he ended up creating some origami unexpectedly, which is pretty impressive.
#3 The Fortune Cookie Pillow
#4 The Porcupine Pillow
#5 The Goldie Locks Pillow
Which pillow is your homeboy? Which one is the least likely to go with you on a trip? Which one makes the best pancakes?
