The Perpetual Blanket

Yesterday SOMEBODY kept stealing the blanket from me while I was sleeping. I'm not sure what was going on. I remember at one point I woke up and slowly pulled a small section of blanket back over - just enough to cover my freezing feet. I've never seen a more violent "sleep tug" in return to my action. Before I knew it I was left with nothing and I was worse off than when I started.

I found a hilarious article on a Dilbert Newsletter about this. Someone proposed that married people should use a "Perpetual Blanket" so that it is impossible to lose your portion of the blanket:

"It's a blanket that wraps down one side of the bed, under the bed and up the other side of the bed, returning to the top. This way people who have spouses that constantly steal the covers can always have a fresh supply being drawn up from beneath. Optional feature: Alarm when blanket is pulled to PROVE that spouse steals the covers."

I think I might have to get one of these.
