I'll admit, I have one
When I was growing up I always had a blanket or pillow case that had satin on it. I used to rub the satin until I fell asleep - it was like my security/comfort thing. As I got older that need for satin never went away. I still make sure that the blankets I buy have satin edging so I can rub it as I fall asleep. I can't seem to relax unless I have something to fiddle with.
I heard a story on the radio as I drove in to work about a guy who had met his dream girl but he was concerned because she was 27 and still had a blankie. Really? That might be his deal breaker? Come on! I'm 48 and I have not one but two feelies that I always have within reach when I go to bed. I don't think that Mr. Man cares. He even helps me find them when I can't locate them. I literally have a hard time relaxing and falling asleep if I don't have them. I bring one of them with me when I travel! Does that make me weird?
I also have a habit of fiddling with little squares of paper when I drive. I have a little pile of them in my console and as soon as I hit the road, I pick one up and start playing with it. I don't know why I do it - I just do. Mr. Man has gotten used to this little quirk as well. He chuckles when he sees me searching for my all important square of paper.
I'd be interested to hear if any of you have odd little things that comfort you that you may or may not be embarrassed to share. I bet you do. Come on, tell me.
