"You have all the blanket!" he said, yanking his hardest so he could turn over and pull more of the covers over him.
On my side, the bare edge of the blanket was under me as i hung on for dear life.
He continued to fuss and yank, so i got up, went around to his side of the bed and pulled the blanket up off the floor -- here's all the blanket, i don't have it, you do! i'd tell him.
The blanket restored to the bed, i'd again roll onto the edge, making sure it was tight under me, as he was just going to start yanking again soon, the blanket mostly ending up on the floor on his side of the bed.
Very soon, we switched to two blankets on the bed, one for each of us, and while he then had to haul his own back onto the bed, at least he wasn't waking me over it.
Yes, Sweetie is a blanket hog.
While Good Fences Around the World seems to have gone the way of the dodo bird, i still enjoy looking for and posting interesting fences, so i will!
It's Angel Sammy's Poetry Day! This week's image and my poem:
Hey, Little Buddy, are we ready to go?
Dressed this way we'll steal the show.
You're my best friend as any can see,
It's me for you and you for me!
