March 6, 2007 – Pillow Talk

And now for something completely different.

During last week’s distracted schedule, I was able to read Bill Bryson’s “A Short History of Nearly Everything.”  Even though there is little I can do to protect myself from the next asteroid impact or explosion of the Yellowstone caldera, there was one tidbit of information in the book upon which I could take swift and decisive action – getting new pillows.

Bryson reports that 10% of the weight of a 6-yr old pillow consists of dead skin, mites, and mite dung.  That was a powerful call to action for me!
