sorry about hogging the blankets

I never believed you completely about how much I hog the covers. You always teased me about it, fake-whined about me stealing them.

I used to try to mitigate it by making the bed slightly unevenly, the sheet and blanket 20% more on your side, trying to do a better job tucking it in on your side. 

But still – even this summer – I thought it was a slight exaggeration. On my own, I tangled the sheet a little in my thrashing, but nothing big. 

Then I added a heavier blanket for autumn and suddenly everything keeps falling on to the floor on my side. I always joked it was your fault the sheets would come untucked on your side and not mine, but that’s clearly not true. I fix it and it’s a mess in a day or two.

I’m not sure what I’m doing, because some days I swear I wake up in the same position I fell asleep in, and would think I haven’t moved, except that the blanket has slipped off and I’m using the side of the sheet as the top and one foot is uncovered.
