I had, after 10 long years, convinced my husband to try something ‘new’ thing in bed. I had heard my friends talking about this and they swore that it changed things drastically in the bed. Every marriage needs a change, I can safely assume. Especially a marriage after kids.
I had done my research. Having extensively poured over the internet, browsed through the various possible styles that would bring new comforts and shades into my bed, I narrowed in on something I would love to experiment with.
Just reading about the new feeling it brought to the body, the sensory pleasures a couple could derive out of it, the coziness, the bonding…it made me giddy with happiness.
Oh, the thrill of something ‘new!’ I couldn’t wait.
The husband however, was reluctant. Usually one open to new ideas, this one wasn’t received by him well. I could understand. The ‘new’ change would impact him the most. He would be in the compromising position here.
On the night in mention, I lay in bed in anticipation. I could almost hear my heart. He walked into the room soon. His gaze met mine. He looked unsure. He was fidgety. He switched off the lights and slid in next to me. The tone of our ‘new’ encounter had been set.
Next morning, I asked him ‘So, how was it?’
Peering over the edge of the paper, he grunted ‘ I want the old blanket back!!’

That’s why I do not share my blanket. We have our own seprate ones.
Lesson learnt Aesha. 🙂
I loved the way you built up the story. You kept the suspense alive till end. Good one.
Interesting !! we use separate blankets/sheets too. Helps to solve many fights and arguments we could, otherwise, have in the middle of the night.
🙂 Makes sense Charu. I’ll probably follow your footsteps soon.
Haha I love my blanket and wouldn’t share it 😃
I wouldn’t blame you!!
Haha nice post. Dear. Actually this happens with everyone. That we are not ready to share our blanket or even our bed side. If any day I have to sleep on my hubby’s bed side that night I failed to get a sound sleep even.
🙂 Glad to know I’m not alone.
What a fun post. 🙂 We never shared our blankets. haha
I’m going to give up sharing too!
Good one, Manveen. Your post kept me hooked till the last word. Short and sexy!
A hilarious post ! 🙂 Loved reading it..Same we are neither ready to share our blanket nor our bed side
Lesson learnt for me Melani.
Ha ha ha! Good one. Oh we have separate blankets too! I am very particular about my bed routines 😛
Haha good one! We use different blankets too though.
Haha…love your posts. Though I was expecting something else here, after I read the first line immediately shared the link with hubby 😉 On a serious note, we don’t share our blankets 😀
OH you did and oh yes, now I don’t want to anymore. 🙂
We co-sleep and the baby is not fond of blankets at all! So we stick to separate ones for each lol.
Separate ones seems to be the only way forward now.
hahahaha…. so I did suspect a surprise but I thought the ‘something new’ in bed would be a baby and that’s the surprise. Totally did not expect this ending… too funny!!! 🙂
Hahaha you should write fictions girl. I can feel this post coz my husband and I are totally obsessed with our blanket. We carry ours everywhere we go
OMG Really Preet! Thankfully we don’t carry it around but it’s reduced to shreds and we really do need to let it go!
Lol. You have funny bones. I actually checked again if i opened the right link as i started reading 😉 . We used to share blanket till recently. But now i njoy baby’s softer blanket more 😉
Ha ha…changing loyalties 🙂 Have fun in the little one’s blanket.
Haha..I thought something really exciting is coming up. But this was a nice twist at the end. Good one.
We fight for the blanket but there is no way we can have our own. we need to share our big blanket 😀
That’s such a fun post .I was waiting for the big reveal and laughed reading the last line.I like my old comfortable blanket too!
haha..I loved this. I’m particular about my blanket too!
I’ve learnt too!
Loved the ending… full of suspense :p
Thanks a lot!!
Haha, a lovely read. And isnt this the story in most homes???? I say with great pride, I love my blanket
Nicely done!! I loved reading this and was wondering till the end what would it be….. 😉
