Once upon a …..

Time…there was a middle-aged man, who’s feet would get so cold that he would jump out of bed like an acrobat and do funny gyrating moves. But don’t laugh, cause he gets really mad! He might even grit his teeth and knarl his fists! No, don’t laugh. It’s best just to sit quietly…maybe even act like you’re asleep (deeeeeeep asleep). So, he won’t take his fit out on you. Even though there is nothing you can do really.


Let him stumble upon one of these little babies at Sam’s Club for $50. Yea, it was a bargain….it has DUAL CONTROLS, people! And it came home with us that very day.

First thing he did was put it on the bed and turn it on. Well, almost turned it on. One of the controls WOULD NOT work (guess which side of the bed?). His!

Then, we were snowed in for the week. So, he tried calling the manufacturer. All he could do was leave messages and he never heard back from them. Lame!

So, on Thursday night…..I had mercy and ran it back to Sam’s to exchange for a working one. But, there were no more to be found! They marked them down to $27 dollars and SOLD EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM!!!! 🙁

Did I mention….I’ve been in bed deathly ill the entire week? Well, I was still not feeling well and this trip was a bad idea.

Luckily, the rude uncaring nice helpful clerk at Sam’s looked up where there might be another of these little babies at another location. JACKPOT, 14 of them still at the Greenwood Sam’s an hour away. Aww man! I’ll never make it to Greenwood. I’m still trying to “not go towards the light”!

Guess where I went today? Greenwood to Sam’s! Yes, it was worth it. When I found it…..I looked up at the price and it was marked down to $24! I grabbed the color we needed and headed to the register running right into an older lady who stopped me to ask…..”Ooooh if you haven’t ever tried one of those, you’re going to LOVE IT!!”.

I laughed. Especially when she told me she paid $70 for hers at the beginning of the cold season. Yikes, I couldn’t hold back that they were now $24. And off she went to get another one.

The End!

Fingers crossed that this one works perfectly. It really is a nice heating blanket. Super soft…..just the way I like it. Warm feet and happy hearts….here we come!
