Don't let the bed bugs bite...mmuuuuhhhhhhhaaa!

Did any of you watch the Today Show yesterday? The very cute Matt Lauer did a segment on pillows and it was a freaking nightmare (pun not intended, but I'll go with it!). Seriously it was horrifying. They talked about all the things that were found on the average person's pillow like, dead skin, hair mites, body excretions and secretions (so lot's of people are apparently freaks in the bedroom), fungi and the list goes on and on. They also talked about how the weight of your pillow and mattress double in like 5 years time, all due to skin being trapped inside. Oh My God! Now you all are aware of my germiphobia, but luckily, on Tuesday morning I did a little online shopping and bought myself these and my finicky husband these. Before you think I am completely psycho about germs, let me remind you that I has heard nothing about this segment, so there!
After the segment was over and my eyes unglued and the gagging stopped, I called my minorly germiphobic mom and asked her if she had seen the segment. She hadn't and said, "So let me guess...you are never using a pillow again." Thanks Mom you have a very special way of confirming my insecurities. So, I'll rest assured as soon as my pillows get here. As far as sleeping elswhere, I'm doomed. I hope you all have a wonderful nights sleep. Sweet dreams!
Quick note: This week is de-lurking week. What this means is that you should say "Hi" while you are here. I know there are a couple hundred of you here daily and I'd love to hear from you.

HI!
Mmmmmmm! I love me some Matt Lauer only I don't get to watch him anymore! Waaaaahh!
I've heard that about your pillow. I've actually heard a lot of things that relate to sleeping. Like, something about the average person swallows like five spiders or something in their lifetime during their sleep. Eeeeewww!

Funny...after all these years, I can so see your mom saying those words, "So let me guess...you are never using a pillow again." In just that certain tone and sweet voice.

OK, Justin got me a pillow for Christmas that has silver in it so that it wont grow dustmites or something. I'll find the link for you...
