To Tuck or Not to Tuck?

No, not my face.  Please.  I’m insulted you even thought that.  And, no, not shirts.  I used to be a major tuck it in girl, until I had kids and that baby bump never left. 

No, I’m talking about sheets.

Last night, I got into bed and the top sheet was untucked.  I was alone, but I said aloud, “Eww!”  You would have thought there were mice in my bed as quickly as I threw off the covers and jumped out of bed!  Unlike George Costanza, I hate not having the sheets tucked in, no question about it. 

I know there are people out there who don’t even use top sheets.  I’ve stayed in their homes.  I can live with that.   But, there is just something about feeling that top sheet creeping up my legs that drives me nuts!  (Since I’m bipolar, I can say that about myself.  You just can’t say it.  Sorry.  One of the few benefits I have.  Live with it.)

As I laid in bed, after the re-tucking, I breathed a sigh of contentment.  Then, I wondered.  Who else cares that much about tucked or not tucked sheets?  My husband sure doesn’t.  He just wants to be warm.  Not picky at all.  Everyone has their quirks.  I probably have more than most.  (Yes, you can say that about me.  That’s just weird, not crazy.)

Maybe I should just sleep in a sleeping bag.  No question.   I’d be all tucked in every night.
