I saw this on the msn home page today and it made me chuckle. I have family members who see these articles or hear news reports about bed bugs or germs and immediately think of me and my pillow. I have a 30+ year old pillow. I’ve had it since I was 2 or so. It’s my security blanket. I know some of you are germiphobes (you know who you are) and would totally freak out if you saw the inside of my pillow. Please know I wash it occasionally.
I haven’t bothered to read the article yet…I really don’t want to. I know it will tell me to throw out my pillow NOW! It will tell me to BURN it and RUN as far away from it as I can! But I can’t – I love my pillow. It’s been my buddy through thick and thin. It’s been around the world (literally – it’s been to China). It’s been lost a couple of times and returned. It also keeps me company when hubby is out of town. Now, why would I want to replace it?
