I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. Remember "The Partridge Family" during the 1970s? Their manager, Reuben Kinkaid used to wear a sleep mask and even then I thought it would be pretty cool to own one. 35 years later I've realised that dream. Now I can wake up with warm eyes! And my eye mask is nearly as pretty as Reuben's pink satin number with black lace trim.
Ummm...I'm not sure if I'm really all that comfortable sleeping in a mask. Can eyes actually sweat? Either that's what was happening last night or my nose was so cold in comparison to my warm eyes that I thought they were sweating. I think I need a nose warmer.
A bra with pockets would also be useful. That's the only thing I use my bra for anyway. Getting ready for bed can be full of surprises some nights ("Ahh, so that's where I put that pencil sharpener!"). The drawback with the pocket bra is probably that some people might want to fit other things in there besides pencil sharpeners and five dollar notes. I don't know, things like...boobs perhaps? How bothersome.
