You know how they say men are from Mars and women are from Venus? I didn’t realise that the 2 planets could be found on the same bed until this week.
I spent the whole week sleeping on The Hubs’ side of the bed because I was down with a cold. Yes, again. Anyhoo, the aircon blows directly on my side so to help stop the sniffles, we switched sides. That was when I discovered how different his side was. It was definitely less drafty. But more than that, I was surprised by how little stuff there was. My side is always cluttered – books, toys, odds and ends, and I swear, if food was allowed in the bedroom, I would stock up on chocolates and cookies.
Here’s a peek at some of the stuff on my side – a whole lot of different organic moisturisers, unread books, a cute kitty massager from our Tokyo trip, Trexi space cats that look like Flyb@ll and Moof@, a bear that helps hold my wedding ring, a smoke mask in case a fire breaks out and we need to run for our lives and a super powerful Maglite in case of power failure or if I need to blind an intruder. This is on top of a really loud alarm clock, remote controls, headphones, medication, more torchlights and a bunch of other useless items.
His side? Just books and mags, and a baseball bat (in case of a break in).
I’m no psychiatrist but I’m pretty certain what’s on our bedside says quite a bit about one’s personality. I obviously need a whole lot of crap just to feel secure and safe. I don’t really need these things but I like having them there. The Hubs? His side is just very him – always secure in his own skin plus he really reads the strangest things.
So what does your bedside look like?
Btw, I’ve moved back to Venus.
