I saw the last half of Along Came Polly over the weekend and was slightly amused at their treatment of throw pillows. The complaint brought up in the movie is that they're only used for show because nobody actually sleeps on them, and that one of the characters wastes eight minutes of his life every day removing or replacing them. I own four throw pillows and have used them all at one time or another. Each of them shares a faux Thai design in what might be described as blurry stitching; with two (red) pillows bought for my old couch and the other two (yellow) pillows for my bed. It was more convenient to sleep on my couch during the 2002 World Cup and 2004 Summer Olympics and my throw pillows saw extended use as a result. Is that such a bad thing?
Then again, it's not like I care if my lifestyle mirrors today's pop movies. Hmm. Except perhaps the Indiana Jones trilogy - I wouldn't mind if my life were a bit more like that.
