So...when I was packing for college I realized that my precious sheet set would not be making the trip to college and I had to find a replacement for my pillow - how else am I going to sleep?! So one afternoon I walked through the fabric store like a 5 year old - literally touching every fabric I could. I walked away with 2 pieces of fabric and my wonderful grandmother stitched 2 pillow cases for me.
Once at school it took me all of 2 weeks to determine that the 1 of the fabrics just wasn't going to cut it. What happened to that case, I couldn't tell ya. But other - almost 9 years later is slept on daily and I can not sleep without it. I'd post a picture, but seriously, admitting it and showing it, 2 totally different things! It started out as white - crisp white - and has now slowly morped into a weird beige/grey.
My pillow case has seen me through break-ups, drunken nights, marriage, pregnancy, strange cities, foreign countries...you name it! And yes as I travel everywhere with it. My job has taken me all over North America, and I made the mistake once of not taking my pillow - BIG mistake - didn't sleep and vowed never to make that decision again. So ever since, it's with me! Always! Yeah - it's weird - you can think it! ;-)
