5 we all sleep alone
well actually, i don't. i sleep with a stuffed animal. only when i sleep alone at home but still... and yes, i am 27 so that's a mite embarrassing, but i'm not ashamed. it helps me sleep. it has helped me sleep since college. i always thought this was due to my lingering fear that someone would stick a saber through the window and slice off my hands if they were outside the blankets (a big thanks to the sadistic babysitter who planted that idea in my little girl head) but after a restless night at the holiday inn, i now know i need a stuffed animal because in a stuffed animal's absence i cling to pillows and wind up twisted within the fitted sheet and awake thinking i've been abducted in a 100% cotton body-bag by the crime syndicate of harrisburg, PA.
