Ode to the Bolster

I think one of my earliest sense of security comes associated with the bolster. Over the years, I have 'upgraded' my bolster from a teeny, poorly stuffed one to one that is big, fat and mighty!

A good night's sleep must come complemented with a nice, huggable bolster. Some like it warm and some like it cool (I have heard stories of kids putting their bolsters in the fridge in preparation for hot summer nights); some like it small and some like it BIG; some barricade their beds with bolsters, especially after watching a scary movie; while some just like to wrap their arms and legs around it, like a koala hugs a tree...

Thank you bolsters of the world, for keeping us safe for generations!
