|I miss blanket forts.|
Tonight I came up with a great idea for a unique Saturday night date with my husband. I told him I'd like us to build a blanket fort in the living room. We could snuggle up and watch a movie inside. We could pretend we're having a sleepover. Nestled in our cozy blanket fort, we could drink icy cold Cokes and feast on Doritos and Hostess like we did when we were 9. Back then diets didn't exist.
I asked if he remembered blanket forts. He did. I asked if he liked my idea, he replied, "What the heck do I want to do that for? The tile floor will hurt my knees." I'm bummed he didn't like my idea. I even suggested that we lay a thick comforter on the floor. No go.
I miss blanket forts. As a kid, I loved using sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows to create an amazing fortress. I'd drag my favorite dolls and books inside. There was a time when I felt so safe under the roof of a homemade living room fort. It was heaven. It was all mine. One day, I will revisit the blanket fort. I simply refuse to abandon the idea.
Did you build forts out of blankets and sheets as a kid?
