Do Blankets Dream Of Electric Sheep?

It’s been a bad week for objects that produce warmth in our house. The pilot light on the water heater went out several times, so we had a plumber come and fix that. Our gas heater makes a horrible noise when you try to light it, so we haven’t been using that. I finally gave up and bought an electric blanket. “You’ve been replaced,” the Boyfriend told me when I climbed into bed last night. “You’re unnecessary now.”

I think he was kidding.

It has separate controls for each side, which is a nice feature since I get a little too warm at night. Of course, the controls aren’t very helpful when your bed partner throws his half of the electric blanket over you so he can cool down. (I suppose this is payback for years of blanket-stealing on my part.)
