The Texture Of Things

This post doesn’t sound like it
but overall, I’m having a pretty good day,

April 20th, 2008

in spite of the fact that at the moment, I fucking hate pillows.

HATE Them.

Last night, as bedtime rolled around, I realized that I had forgotten to go out and buy pull ups for the tot, so that meant she had to wear a cloth training pant to bed. And that meant I’d be washing all of her bedding first thing in the morning.

And lo, it came to pass. In fact, it passed so much that even her pillow was pee-y.

Um, gross.

But! That’s OK! Because this pillow is washable! Huzzah!

Only except for the part where this pillow has an allergy barrier which is nigh-on airtight; ergo, the pillow, when exposed to a tub full of water, floats.


I’d like to take a moment to tell you what I had to do to get that pillow to wash. I had to cut it. That’s right. I cut a hole in the pillow and squeezed it like it was old swim floatie. So there goes the allergy barrier.

Goddam pillows.

    Hm. Oh, well. The things we do, sometimes. I would have just said the hell with it, and saturated the pillow with Lysol, or bought a new one. All that effort wasted seems so …. effortful. And, I just don’t have it in me right now, you know?

    I imagine Mary did not grumble under her breath (as I did yesterday), “Jesus Christ, would you just get in there!” Or maybe she did.

    Pee pillows. Oh yes, how well I remember. After washing a pillow twice in one week, I wound up wrapping the pillow in a kitchen trash bag, taping it so it was tight. Then I used two pillowcases, layered with the openings going in opposite directions, so even if one pillowcase rode up it wouldn’t expose the plastic. It worked. I washed a lot more pillowcases for a while there, but it’s far easier to wash pillowcases than pillows.
