Why is the duvet allways the wrong way round?
« on: 29/11/2006 09:24:29 »
There simply must be a science behind the fact that when ever I bed-hop  from couch to bed (long story) during the night that I always end up with the bottom-buttoned end of the duvet at my head end !!..and it's well annoying !!

Does anyone else experience this phenomena ?

Can anyone explain it ?

Can you be bothered too ?

can I be bothered to read the explanation ?




*sorry...no sleep since Monday*

Do you actually fall asleep?

You would be a strange dreamer indeed if you take it off, turn it backwards, and put it back on in your sleep.

Or is that normal for you?

Yes, that could be annoying, but I can't imagine how you do that unless you are dreaming you are a young buck on a camp out and are trying to get into your sleeping bag! So Funny!! Try to get some sleep, will ya!LOL

I did try this but I am always left with one hand free !!

What I originally meant is that i often picky my duvet up and move to another room...another bed...or a couch and then eventually end up back where I started and that each time I put the duvet down it's the button end which is at the head end !!...happened today and yesterday and will happen tomorrow too !!

The secret is that you probably get out of your bed and walk towards your now location picking your duvet up as you pass the foot of the bed (this meand uoy are hoding the buttony end in your hands)then as you approach the new location you put the duvet down starting with the bottom of the bed and finishing with the head end and notice that the buttony end is by your face.
