Funny Daddy

02 Nov


Mom and dad do bring out the freeze in cold.  This is a picture of their air conditioning unit while at the beach.  A chilly but yet comfortable 54 degrees.  Too cold for you?  Now you know why I wear a fur coat at the Hotel Thompson – snorts.  No really, it’s fine here.

They both like it cold – especially at night when they are trying to sleep and have sweet dreams.  But there is one difference between here at the Hotel Thompson and the hotel they stayed at during vacation.  Blankets.  That’s right, I said blankets.

You see here at the Hotel Thompson, mom and dad have separate blankets.  I know it seems odd but it works for them and what works ain’t broke so don’t fix it.  You’re probably asking yourself why the separate blankets?  I’m glad you asked.

Early in their marriage, they both learned that dad was a blanket whore.  Yep, I said it.  Blanket whore.  Take in point this picture that mom took as evidence for an example 🙂

See all of those blankets on the floor to the right side of the bed?  That was daddy’s side.  Daddy who kept telling mommy that she was hogging all of the blankets and he had none.  All during the time that mommy’s frozen derrière was hanging out in the cold and she was shaking from frostbite.  I mean, she could have turned the air conditioning down but then, she would be too hot to sleep.  It’s what mom refers to as a catch 22 – darned if you do and darned if you don’t.

Anyone else relate?  Please tell me mommy isn’t the only one with a blanket hog?

      Daddy used to roll around a lot too. That is until mom and dad got what they called a Select Number bed. Now she doesn’t feel him moving – snorts. It’s only a problem when they go on vacation. Maybe they should start asking for a room with two queens instead on one King? That could woke. Hey mom! XOXO – Bacon

    My Dad insists my Mom is a blanket hog (oops…sorry about that) but really my Dad is terrible about pulling all the covers over to his side. Humans are so silly!

      They are. I think mom and dad have it right here with separate blankies. Can you believe that dad even calls me a blanket hog? When I get in bed with them, I kind of have the tendency to pay him back for mom by stealing all of his blankies. Hey it’s what I do. PLOL. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh, sweet Bacon that is all familiar to us…our Popsy does the same thing. He not only hogs the blankets but sheets, quilts and blankets…all of it!! Hugs and snout kisses

      Snorts. What are we going to do with these dads? I guess share doesn’t come up in their vocabulary when slipping. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Same here, they both like the cold air, but Dad likes to wrap up like a piece of toast, Now Mom just is plain hot. Well we sleep in between the oven zone and the freezer zone!

      Snorts. It’s great to sleep in cool air. It just helps everything. But dad. Well dad is a cocoon sleeper. Thank goodness mom learned a long time ago about separate blankies. If not, she would be frozen by now – Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    54! Too cold for this girl. We also do the separate blanket thing in our house. My husband is the hot cookie who needs little more than a thin cotton blanket. I need a pile!

      Snorts. Mommy likes a heavy blankie and dad likes the quilt. I do admit I like dads quilt and I’ve been known to take it from him a couple of times. You know. Just to show him how it feels. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Guess what? My staff has separate blankets too. Both prefer to sleep like a “rolled roast” with a blanket-wrapping. One blanket for both = w.a.r. Have a super saturday Bacon!

    I think easyweimaraner has excellent advise on this topic BUT I did have a giggle at the thought of your Mom’s frozen d.

      Snorts. Stealing moms blanket will always be bad here. An unhappy mommy is an unhappy home. XOXO – Bacon

    I gotta tell you, Bacon, but 64 would be too cold for me! Brrrr! No wonder daddy won’t share the blankets! Maybe sleeping bags would work!

      Snorts. My humans they like it cold. They like to burrow in the blankets and snuggle. They do accommodate me which is good here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s probably around 65 here. XOXO – Bacon

    We have the same thing here, but for a different reason. Daddy is a furnace so he has the sheet, unless it is -50. And mummy is normal so she curls up in the duvet.

      Opposites attract, don’t they? Snorts. Mommy is the heater here. In fact, she’s hot – snorts. Daddy is the cool factor. So funny. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh yes. Mom says sometimes at night that it’s cold and daddy needs to throw another cat on the bed. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – daddy has a CPAP machine too. You can see the hose in the picture. The first machine he had was awful sounding. I could even hear it all the way in my bedroom! His new machine has a tight mask and now we hear nothing. Mommy also turns a fan on in the bedroom for sound that she can focus on to sleep. I don’t understand that part but that’s what she tells me she does. XOXO – Bacon

        This mask is a dud..makes more noise than the snoring…..then I get the cold breath like the grim reaper blowing on my back hahahahah damn that thing is a pain!! hugs Fozziemum xx..

        Snorts! Hemi plays with the cold air that comes out of daddy’s hose. It’s too funny sometimes to hear daddy in the bedroom fussing at that little purr thing – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
