This week’s Stupid Tuesday Question was contributed by scholar, chum and fellow LOOG blogger Jaybird. Take it away, Jaybird!
My stupid question is on the nature of lying in bed with a (life?) partner.
When you lie in bed, on your back, is your partner on the left side or the right side?
Do you mix it up? Like, it’s wintertime, time to change sides of the bed?
Is it based on whether you’re on the right or on the left or is it based on where the bathroom is and whether your partner has bathroom priority?
A few months back, I met a couple who switched it up regularly and that strikes me as INSANE. They, of course, looked at us like we were crazy for saying “pick a side” and sticking to it for coming up on 13 years now.
I want to know who, in that interaction, was crazy.
And that is my stupid question.
Fabulous. In the Saunders/Better Half household, I am always on the left. I have no idea how it came to pass that this would be the arrangement, but I’m pretty sure it’s been that way for the entirety of our eight years together. I concur with Jaybird that switching it up is completely insane, and there is no way I would be able to get to sleep if I tried to do it on the right. (I’m a lousy enough sleeper as it is.) How about the rest of you?
