This is not an Infomercial

As I mentioned a while ago, after 13+ years of hard-fought sleep wars Jeff finally seceded to the guest room.  He gets much better sleep now, but I can't say that I'm thrilled with the arrangement.  I don't see how it's my fault that he can't get any sleep when I'm rolling around all night kicking him.  Men can be such babies! 

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago we were watching TV and a commercial came on for the Sobakawa® Cloud Pillow™.  I can remember saying something like "That looks like the least comfortable pillow in the history of mankind.  What dumbass would sleep on that?"

A couple of days later Jeff handed me a Macy's bag and said "Here's a little something to keep you company at night."  I opened the bag and very own  Sobakawa® Cloud Pillow™.  Apparently he thinks I'm the right kind of dumbass.  He has a strange sense of humor.

We opened the box and tossed it around a couple of times and made all the requisite jokes.  Then I set it aside, fully intending to return it and spend the money on something I really need (like Smirnoff Ice).

That night I decided, just for laughs, to give it a try.  And......Holy crap - how much do I love that thing?!?!  It's the best pillow ever.  Best. Pillow. Ever.  The only thing I don't like about it is the size - it's really small.  I think it comes in bigger sizes, so I'm totally buying a bigger one.  All that bullshit in the commercial?  True.  Completely true.  You can even put it in the freezer if you like a cold pillow.  I freaking love it.  Love it!

Naturally, Jeff takes full credit for his genius idea.  Whatever.  He out smart-assed himself, as usual.  He better not try to take my new pillow to the guest room.  I'd hate to have to start sabotaging his nights. Again.

Disclaimer: A lot of people make money by monetizing their blog or doing product reviews for pay. I'm not one of them.  I don't have a problem with bloggers making money, but it's not my thing (and it wouldn't really work with what I do here). This entry is just my opinion about an item my husband gave me as a joke, nothing more.


  1. Act now! This incredible pillow won't be in stock for long. The first 500 comments wil receive this six pack of Smirnoff Ice as our free gift.

    You won't pay $99.99! You won't pay $89.99! You won't pay $79.99! Make just 4 payments of $39.99 plus plus tax and $14.99 s&h.

  2. No way on the Smirnoff Ice. It's mine...ALL MINE!

    I actually haven't had any Smirnoff Ice since last year (as part of my weight loss plan). When I told Jeff, he said "Wow. A whole 6 weeks." He really needs to work on positive reinforcement.
