I’m sorry, but that is HI-larious. I would so do that, but it’s just big ‘ole me and no one would be the wiser. Also, I’m lazy and having get new sheets either from the store or from the linen closet is too much trouble.

i define “lazy” but not when it comes to sheets. that’s when i go all anal and needs good, tidy, tight sheets.

Oh my gosh,this totally happened to me last week. My hubby actually asked me if it was on my side because my feet are so dry and gross that it could have been the cause…but I denied it!

..if my husband has been using this as a made up story to tell jokes with our whole marriage, I’m gonna be pissed.
I have thought for 5 years that people actually had sex through a hole in the sheets!

It is presented as trufax in the novel “Midnight’s Children”. Super long & trippy book [book club] but pretty dang cool, about kids born near the midnight of India’s independence from Britain.

& there’s through-a-sheet-hole sex. ;p

You’re welcome. LOL

Ours aren’t holey, but that’s prolly just cuz we only recently got our King sized bed and they haven’t had a chance yet to *get* holey. But the sheets coming off the corner of the bed? Skeeves me out that he won’t fix that before he goes to sleep!

I love how no one has commented on the fact you wore a hole in your bed sheets.

Way to go!

Bless you and your optimism, and pass the tissues.

I hear you and I second that! A couple of weeks ago I spent the entire night of our date night convincing Hubby we need new sheets and towels.
Him: What’s wrong with them?
Me: nothing, but we’ve had them since we were married 8 years ago…that’s kind of gross. They are kind of gross.
Him: They work fine
Me: well, it’s not a garlic press we are talking about here, I’d like some fresh new (not stained) towels and sheets and I can’t even remember what color these were!
Him: Fine, but I get to use them as rags in the garage.
Good grief….what the F ever!

i bought new towels a year or so ago after the old ones were de-threading (if that’s a word). he had no idea why we needed new ones. he’ll use the dog towels if he can’t find clean bath towels, which, ew.

One of my favorite Jim Gaffigan quotes is this “My wife is always like ‘why don’t you make the bed?’. For the same reason why I don’t tie my shoes after I take them off. It doesn’t make sense.”

And he’s RIGHT! I make the bed, really just tidy up the sheets and blankets, just before I go to bed, no after I get out!

19 Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] January 29, 2010 at 4:50 pm

i do pull the sheet and blanket up, but hardly ever fully make the bed.

We own towels that are older than my oldest kid….and he’s 24!!!

I’m a sheet freak. They have to be tight and tucked in and the openings on the pillowcases have to face the OUTSIDE of the bed. Life was good when I worked at Pottery Barn.

How do you spell OCD?

Heh. I need to put new sheets ON. It’s shameful how infrequently our linens are cleaned. ;s

Really? Not a single person has made a joke about “unholy sheets”?

uhm, duh, cause we’re married. do you not know the rule of holy and unholy?

Nu-uh. This is unacceptable. See, I would KNOW that it was there and couldn’t sleep. I would move my feet around until I felt it and then couldn’t stop. I have to have the sheets straight too. It makes me crazy when my hubby sticks his feet out and pulls the sheets and blanket out from it’s perfectly tucked position under the mattress. He calls me “bed sheet OCD” but I think I’m just NORMAL!

we could totally share a bed.

30 Mary @ Holy Mackerel January 30, 2010 at 4:21 pm

Yeah, that would be my husband as well. Except, he is MUCH worse, as in, the sheet will be stiff with dirt and stains before he notices…

It’s true, men never do grow up. Mine is living proof of that too. I have three children. Two little girls and one grown man.
