Blindfolded

Monday, June 30, 2008

Ever since I came back from a trip to L.A., I'm all about sleeping with an eye mask. I used it on the red eye home and I can't believe I've slept so many years without one. I feel so refreshed when I wake up in the mornings now. When I pull that over my eyes, it doesn't matter what the BF is watching because I can block it out. It's an amazing mask, I tell ya. It can be anything from that stupid baby's voice on Family Guy or George from Seinfeld (I love Seinfeld). All the sound seems to fade away when I sleep with the mask now.

However, the BF hates it. He says it scares him because all he sees is this "freaky mask" looking at him in the middle of the night. It's not freaky -- it's an eye mask for god's sake. I figured he'd get used to it, right? I mean, I take up the entire bed and he's gotten used to that. I'm constantly running 10 minutes behind and I have champagne taste on beer money. All of which he has gotten used to in the last two years of our courtship.

But, I've been noticing that my mask is at odd places in my room in the morning. The other day I woke up and it was across the room and then it was on his side of the bed. Now. Let's think about this. I don't think I'm lunging this across the room in the middle of the night. Do you?

I bought it at Target -- nothing fancy but is silk on the outside and comfortable cotton maybe on the inside. I recommend one with padding. Very comfortable -- who knew.

I had one of those for a while, and now I can't find it, but it was wonderful. I slept so well when I used it. Perhaps I will need to find a new one, or the old one if it is still around somewhere.

i've never used a sleeping mask before, but then again i can usually sleep through anything.

but it sounds like your bf is tossing your eye mask around. unless you dream of shotputting, haha.

i used an eye mask to avoid sex with my ex for about 3 years. its awesome for pretending to be asleep.

But I'd agree, they make rest so much better!
