Speaking of Cold…
Earlier this year, the Priorhouse explored some “weighted blankets”
Not sure if you heard about weighted blankets, but we had been wanting to try them for a while. The first one we tried was a 20lb blanket and it was way too heavy. The “10lb” ones seem to be ideal. We mostly just use these blankets to cover the feet and lower legs at night – and very fun to finally try them out.
Also, wanted to share the humor we found with the information insert that came with one of the blankets. The ad had so many typos and errors- and I had to take a photo to share
Now of course we all know that grammar errors and typos can easily happen to most of us (with auto correct, AI offering predictive, smart features, etc.)
However, this information insert was obviously made with carelessness.
Perhaps the sign of our times – but check it out and let me know what you think:
Okay – so here are the two parts that really had us laughing (they are lower right) in the image –
“A weighted blanket would small than same size ordinary blanket because it is supposed to cover your body other than your bed” Huh???
And: “Only the King Size Weighted Blanket is meant for sharing.”
Spouse: “Hey honey, can I place a piece of your weighted blanket on my feet?”
Me: “Um, honey, no. I only have the Queen size weighted blanket and you know the directions say only the ‘King Size weighted blanket is meant for sharing’ – so I’m sorry – cannot share.”
Spouse “Oh, Okay.”
That was a joke – but that line in the ad reminded me of the tags that used to come on bedding that said it ws “illegal to remove” the tags. Remember those?
