So, when I was in Maine in July, one of the things I bought was a fur pillow case, because I thought kittens might like to lay on it. I gave the pillow forms away and just brought the pillow covers home with me. Hemlock thought it was pretty cool.
So did Privet.
When Privet, Juniper and Hemlock went to Petsmart, stripped the room and left everything – including the pillow cover – near the washer. Now, I should note that the pillow cover isn’t actually machine washable – it’s supposed to be dry-cleaned, but there’s just no way I’m going to pay to dry-clean that thing between litters. I bought it assuming it was machine washable, then when I realized it wasn’t, I shrugged and tossed it in the washer anyway. I figured that if it fell apart, I’d toss it. If it didn’t, then I’d know I could machine wash it.
On Saturday, I finally got around to washing it, and when I took it out of the dryer, it looked very different. It was like the “fur” had kind frayed at the ends. So I took it up to see what the Greasers thought of it.
During my glance at the tag, I thought I’d read that the pillow was made of polyester, but given Ponyboy’s reaction, I took another look. Turns out that the “fur” side of the cover is sheepskin. That explains it!
I made a video of Ponyboy and Sodapop checking out the pillow cover.
Fred’s desk is located directly behind mine, and I see this sight quite often.
What it looks like from Fred’s perspective:
2015: No entry.
2014: When he gets really excited, his suave and debonair exterior slips, and he lets his Alabama shine through.
2013: Meadow would like you to TALK TO THE PAW.
2012: Tony Rocky Magoo + red straw = true love forevah.
2011: Tucker’s all “WHY I NEVER!” Hee!
2010: “I am hanging out with my bo’friends, lady. You go away!”
2009: But Bill apparently decided that it was time for his eyelips to GO, and ::SPROINGGGG!:: off they went!
2008: No entry.
2007: It’s a good thing he’s so cute.
2006: Maddy and Miz Poo come face-to-face over Tigger. And then Miz Poo ran away from the terrifying kitten.
2005: So, that’s been my day thus far, and it’s not even noon. I think I need a nap.
