Me: "Penny for your thoughts, Pillow?"
Pillow (gazing forlornly out window): "I am flawed. No one will ever want me..."
Me: "Pshaw! Flawed?! How? Where?"
Pillow: "I have two faint spots in my corner (photo 9). And my trim on one side doesn't quite match up to the trim on the reverse side. I'm a bit lumpy...~sigh~."
Me: "Oh, Pillow! Those spots just prove that, when you were a curtain 75 years ago, you were well loved and used! And what's a little imperfect trim lineup, given your beautiful satin brocade textiles and velvet and lace detailing? Remember, you're completely hand stitched and appliqued. Your outer border trim came all the way from France. Those lumps are natural...they'll smooth right out when you settle into your Forever home! You're reversible, too, which is like having two of you for the price of one!"
Pillow: "I am a new product line. What if no one ever loves me??? I feel insecure...~sniff~".
Me: "I will love you, Pillow! I ALREADY love you! That's why you're expensive (not as expensive as the mass produced fancy pillows that aren't even vintage or reversible that I saw while conducting my market research, but still). I don't WANT to let you go. Besides, you're one of a kind! No one like you will ever exist again!"
Buster the Dog: "Mother, you're having a conversation with a pillow. I think it's time you got out of the house and socialized."
Mouser the Cat: "Mother, I've spoken to the other felines and we concur."
Me: "You guys are right, as always. Talking to a pillow is just crazy!"
