To be prepared in case a pillow fight breaks out?

Also, for, um, leverage. Alledgedly. Not that I know. But, uh, Kreg told me. Yeah. That's what happened.

I think it's so my husband can smother me in my sleep and then claim it was an accident. . .not that I'm paranoid or anything. . . : )

Enjoy your time away!

To keep their partner on the other side of the bed.

The number of pillows on a bed is the fundamental difference between men and women. It's true. I love putting as many pillows on the bed as I can, where as my husband would put his one beat to hell, saliva stained excuse for a pillow on the bed.

it's so i don't have spend money decorating the rest of the room. if you're focused on all the pillows, you don't notice that there are cloths all over the floor & no curtains...

I agree with Sheila. Your visitor's focus will be drawn to the Martha Stewart-inspired bed pillows and not notice the cat puke on the floor. Maybe that's why you keep stepping in it, Lorrie Dear, too many pillows on your bed. Fewer feathers = less blogging about stepping in cat hurl. It's a win/win!

I can't stand pillows on my bed unless I'm pregnant (and I'm not). I'm not even just talking about the decorative crap. I don't want a pillow under my head. It makes me feel crooked.

To smother the many hapless victims...

My partner loves how Urexer's Hardening Creme make me perform.

in ancient times, the fatter a person was, the more attractive they were considered to be. flab was a sign of wealth. but this clearly does not apply to pillowage. the number of pillows one has is NOT a sign of wealth (i have 27 on my bed when i make it. which is probably why i rarely make it. but they sure look pretty when they're all arranged nicely.) too bad that flab thing from days gone by isn't in effect any more, or i'd be growing more attractive by the day lately. ♥

WV: uwInApriZe!

a prophetic message about the near future.

oh, and the next WV that came up was:
"panstict", which is what happens every time i cook. it's also what i smear all over my face to hide the real me. ♥

Because my mother always had them on her bed.

OHN said...

Oh...you mean they don't all belong on the floor?

Virginia said...

You have got to watch a funny film called Along Came Polly. This topic is discussed and dealt with. ;)

HLEure said...

because they look PRETTY and irritate the heck out of husbands who are obsessed with PRACTICALITY. apparently, beds are meant for sleeping on, and not for decorating. i never knew.

RoadBunner said...

I used to because my mom used to. I have since stopped with all decorative pillows. Too much of a pain to remove/put back every day!

SassyPants said...

Probably for building pillow forts. And also to make me jealous. There are always so many pillows on the beds in department stores and home design magazines, but there's a part of me that has a viceral reaction to potentially paying 30 bucks for a square of fabric full of squishy who knows what.

I don't understand that, myself. Two pillows per person. If you need to remove pillows before going to bed, then you have too many pillows.

Lin said...

They're pillow hoarders.

My husband's one of these people. He has to have like 4 pillows to sleep with. I only have 1 (although I do steel one of his sometimes).

If you are alone, it will feel like you have someone ( a soft, cuddly someone) in bed with you.
