strange small satisfaction

i’m  a slob.  i will, without much thought, walk into a room and take my jacket off and put it on the floor, then there are closets or hangers within steps of where i am.  This does not bother most folx here much, but it definitely makes some people i hang with in the mainstream sad or uncomfortable or feel sorry for me.

For 54 years i have consistently not made my bed, til this week.  Slightly on a whim, slightly just to not be stuck in a pattern, i’ve started making my bed every day i use it.  No promises on follow thru here, but it definitely does help induce the illusion that the room is tidy, which gives some strange small satisfaction.

my room looks larger with the bed made also

    Oh, I like to make the bed. It looks nice and finished, and it’s good to get into when the day is done. Assuming you have a bed, it costs nothing. The 7:00-a.m.-Sean makes the bed, and the 11:00-p.m.-Sean is gets to fold down the covers and get into it. It’s like I gave myself a little present.

    I am shitting myself. You, making YOUR OWN bed? No way!!!!!

    I like how you conveniently connect “mainstream” with not throwing your clothes on the floor – There was always something for me about the bed being made, a sense of calm in the chaos…I do want to acknowledge that sometimes you did make our bed just because I liked it. Thanks!

    @Z – And i with some regularity make Hawina’s bed, which i sleep in often because she likes it. But my own bed (when i am not sharing it with someone as lovely as you) is much more rare. i am bemused by this thread of personal set of comments, but i should not be.
