i'm guilty. i don't know from where it transpired, but i covet fancy sheets. almost embarrassed to admit it, my (one of many) guilty pleasures is the company store. i know i can't afford it. i know they are unnecessary. i know i can find something cheaper at bed, bath, & beyond, or target, or probably even Kmart. but i need to look. a girl can dream. and sometimes there are sales, and deals too irresistible to pass up, and sometimes there are holidays or birthdays...
these lemon lime sheets seemed the perfect summer sheet. crisp, bright, fruity, and light. and how could i say no to a $13 fitted sheet, a $12 top sheet, and $5 pillowcases? did it matter if i wasn't sure if my bed was a queen or a double? no. if they were too small, well, i would make them fit, or i would pass them on to someone else who might be able to use them.
they didn't fit. but i didn't care. i yanked one corner, i fought with another, i pushed another, and i almost gave up on the last one. my bed looked a little like an upside-down opened umbrella. i still didn't care. and the corners stayed on.
best sleep i've had, whether i get 8 hours or only 5.
Still fighting the fight!!!
