Little Help Here

Do you have any tried and true ways of winning the tug 'o' war with covers?

It's past midnight and I'm posting in Foo because I got sick of losing.

Now I'm on the couch.

Ummm. Bring a hammer to bed?
Bring your own set of sheet?
Splash cold water on SO.
Thwack SO with a pillow.

Actually, Thwack them then splash them with water when they wake up

If it's keeping you up I think it's time that you have a heart to heart talk.



And go wake their ass up. If you're up, they have to be up.

Good idea. I should tell him I heard a noise and then when he's checking the place out, I'll run upstairs, rip the covers all on my side and roll around in them burrito style.

I still vote for thwacking him with a pillow and splashing him with water. Okay maybe nix the water. But at least thwack him with the pillow. And when he wakes up he can see you, with no blankets.. and hopefully he'll be able to put two and two together.

Do not mix his advice with my advice. That would be quite catatropic. Do one or the other on separate nights.

Scandinavian beds often have side by side covers so that one unruly cover hogging bedmate does not ruin your good night's sleep.

Neither The Girl or I are ones to steal the covers from each other so it isn't an issue... if I can't sleep at night I usually don't mind the reason I am being kept up.

Save for those nights I get searing spasms down my back and legs... this will put me on the couch as I don't like to disturb The Girl with my tossing and turning.

We're strange, I guess. Mrs. A has two extra blankets on her side, and I am sometimes taking the comforter off and putting it on her side. Other times, I hog the comforter a little but she doesn't notice because of her extra blankets.

But I do have one suggestion... have you tried wearing a Snuggie to bed?

Double-king comforters. Although I get too warm under them and shove them all over to her side anyway.
