You may recall a blog post I did a few months ago, when we first moved to Kuwait called: Mr. Pillow. Well, he still holds the top spot in Rachel’s heart, and I’m a distant second. However I am thinking I might have a scored a few bonus points with the Mrs. when I saved his life . . . . AGAIN!
During our Holiday Break, we checked into our tree house at Yala National Park, when Rachel suddenly realized that Mr. Pillow was gone! We had just completed a 4 hour tuk tuk ride (it was supposed to be 2 hours) and I thought for sure it was laying on the side of the road somewhere in the beautiful countryside of Sri Lanka. Rachel was bummed, however I was a bit excited. (Perhaps this was my chance at being #1 in her heart!) Unfortunately though, my feelings of excitement did not last long. . . . .
We had just sat down for dinner at the hotel restaurant on our first night there. We were hanging out with a few people from New Zealand, drinking some Lion Lagers, and watching some cricket on tv, when I noticed a blue blurr. For a second, I just assumed it was the Lion Lagers taking their effect on me after 4 months of sobriety, but then I realized what it was . . . . . Mr. Pillow!
I asked Rachel, “is that your pillow?” She nearly broke her neck, as she twisted her body in world record speed. Her face lit up when she realized that it was indeed Mr. Pillow. She nearly pulled a hamstring sprinting across the restaurant to go grab it! It somehow must have fallen off her pack when we were getting out of the tuk tuk, and whoever found it, just put it in the lobby.
I was sure to capture this pic as she was reunited with Mr. Pillow:
And then he joined us at the table for the rest of our dinner:
Everyone is happy that he is back with us:
I will continue to update the comings and goings of Mr. Pillow during our time in Kuwait. He has survived a couple of times, but we’ll see how many lives he has!
