Cause sometimes I get the feeling they were invented for "DIY Therapy"
Think about it, they're:
a) soft enough that when you punch them it doesn't hurt
b) absorbent enough that when you scream into them you can keep it to yourself
c) stain-proof enough that when you cry into them the mascara washes out (if you act quickly)
d) comfortable enough that when you're worn out from doing a, b, & c you can relax and let it go
I think in most cases, nothing is truly horrible enough that you should torture your poor pillow.
Seriously, what did it ever do to you?
