Smelly Pillow

Tough day today - surprisingly. Ever since I can remember I have had the same pillow. It is called my smelly pillow and I carried it around everywhere when I was a kid and even when I got a little older. It comes on all my road trips and most vacations. It finally go to the point where it was too ratty to keep around, so today I threw it away. I was surprised at how sad I was - I even shed a few tears! I guess most kids carry a wooby or a stuffed animal which you eventually grow out of or are weaned off of by your parents. A pillow is not something you grow out of, and I realized today when I got rid of it that I hadn't grown out of it either. I feel like it is going to be tough to sleep for a little while with a strange pillow in my bed. Thanks smelly pillow for all the good times!

I don't know if you remember this, but I had a smelly pillow too! And did it smell oh soooooo good! :) We must have been smelling our pillow simultaneously while rooming together at Ricks. About 5 years into marriage, Cale hid my pillow (he said he was sick of me snuggling with the pillow more than him), then I found it a couple years later when we moved. By that time, I was no longer addicted so we threw it away. I think I cried too! :(
