Under the Covers for Safety


For the A-Z Blog challenge, I will be addressing some of life's big questions.
Perhaps together we can find the answers to many heretofore unsolvable mysteries.


is for Covers




What is it about covers that makes us feel safe? It's impossible to watch a scary show without full covers protection. And when it gets really scary, not even one toe can be out.

How can a sheet and a blanket protect us from this

or this

or any of these?


I don't know. It's a mystery.

Tomorrow's Question:
Is that really an instrument?

    1. The womb feels safe, but also a little gross.

  2. Weird, right? Even if I haven't been watching anything scary or if it's 100 degrees, I literally can't sleep without something covering me.

    1. Exposure just makes a person feel vulnerable. I agree.

  3. Ha Ha! This post so just took me back to when I was a kid and my brother would make me watch Nightmare on Elm Street. I always had to have a cover over me, which is kind of weird now thinking about it since the kids in the movie were attacked in their sleep!

  4. Defies logic, but when you're little it works. Just as those monsters that lived in my closet.

    1. Luckily, when you're a kid, logic is rarely applied.

  5. Blankets hold magical powers of protection. I have heard that they are actually woven from the fibers of once brave knights who have slain dragons and other beasts. When we wrap these blankets of armor around our bodies we are engulfed in their protection and bravery and no hiding monstrosity can attack us. That's what I hear anyway.

  6. I'm a covers girl. Even if I'm super hot, I still need something over me. It could be the weight of them. Not sure. It IS a mystery. LOL

    1. Just having something between me and whatever is out here seems to help.

  7. I think the idea is what we can't see can't hurt us. LOL. Great A-Z post!

  13. Seems as though you have un-covered one of life's imponderables. And I cannot help you. When we Bears sleep, we never use covers.

    1. Nice pun. I guess bears come with built-in covers.

    1. Sorry. Maybe I should have added an advisory. Warning: Scary Pictures. Which is exactly what I googled to find them all.

  15. I used to think my blanket would get up and karate chop any baddies coming for me. Thanks for posting. Also, you've won an award on my blog. Stop by to learn more.
