Flannel Fogginess

Image found here

One of my favorite set of sheets for our bed is made of fuzzy blue flannel. I love their squishy softness and warmth. Had a flannel incident the other day, however. 

Remember those wonderful flannel boards when you were in kindergarten? You would if you were fifty plus years old, so bear with me here. They were like a bulletin board, except they had a flannel front. You could take neat-o flannel cutouts of people and houses and clouds and whatever else the kindergarten teacher thought age appropriate, and put them on the board. Like magic, the cutouts would stick to the board. Wowsers. 

So the other night, I put my blue flannel sheets on the bed, fresh out of the dryer. Ahhh. Wonderful warm fuzziness...It seemed like a good idea at the time to also put on my fuzzy flannel nightgown. I hopped into bed, and, you guessed it - stuck to the sheets like a kindergarten cutout. 

To ensure a restful night, it would have been logical for me to change my pajamas, or change the sheets.

Which, of course, meant that this was what I did not do. 

Gotta get me a brain one of these days.

Did your nightgown have duckies on it?

Alas, no. I am not one of the privileged few who own yellow ducky jammies.
