Last weekend, I stripped the striped sheets off my bed, put them into the wash, and went to put the patterned sheets on. But nowhere could I find the pillowcases. I hunted through the entire linen closet, but to no avail. I gave up and put a pair of solid-color cases that sort of blended with the sheets onto the pillows.
This morning, I stripped the patterned sheets and the solid-colored pillowcases off the bed and put them into the laundry basket. I then dug out the flowered sheets and put them on the bed, but, alas! there was only one flowered pillowcase! Again, I hunted through the linen closet. Lo and behold! I found the patterned pillowcases I'd wanted last week but no second flowered pillowcase. I gave up and used the one flowered case and one solid case that sort of blends with this set.
I can only assume that my linens are out to drive me slowly insane.
And I'm keeping a careful eye on the set of striped pillowcases that are due up for next week.
