#438 – Adjustment

It’s funny how I don’t pay much attention to sheets anymore. When I was little it was always very exciting when my mom changed the sheets on my bed. Would I be sleeping on Batman tonight? Garfield? The generic space battle Star Wars rip off sheets? I think my favorite bedding set was the Transformers. Optimus Prime looked really cool even on a pillow

    I’ve altogether stopped using sheets. I’m in the south, and it’s just too hot. I just stick with a nice, goose down comforter. However, the last time I had sheets I was around the age of 9. I am not afraid to admit that they were Pokemon sheets. That’s right, I slept on Pikachu nightly.

    Also, the use Biff finds for the sheet fragments could make a pretty good comic…

    Back when I slept on a mattress, my sheets would never fit correctly and it was a constant struggle to keep them on the mattress. Those elastic things they sell didn’t work too well either.
    Now I sleep on a wooden plank. A flat sheet spread out over the plank makes things easy.

    There’s nothing like slipping in between a newly-laundered fresh set of sheets. 🙂

    They’re crisp and cool, then warm up and become snuggly. And yeah, I buy the expensive high-count sheets. They’re even better.

    I only really use a comforter although I do have a form-fitting sheet for my mattress to make sure it stays clean, because my dog sleeps on my bed too.

    right now? I sleep on boring beige sheets. I’m not sure I ever used novelty bedding, even as I child. I guess I used to have these thicker sheets with penguins on them during the winter months when I was 8/9/10-but they were just some small designs.

    Whoo! I almost guessed it 😀

    The Duck Has Spoken.

    I sleep on a hammock, so none of my sheets fit!

  8. Simon says:

    I had some nice sheets with hot-air balloons on them when I was little. They were awesomely soft. Maybe I should ask my mother if she still has them. 🙂

  9. Elle says:

    Man, I don’t even remember a time when my Mum changed my sheets for me. It has always been my responsibility, which is bad because I only change my sheets when I notice the smell, which is about two weeks after everyone else notices the smell.

    But right now I’m sleeping in Pirates of the Caribbean sheets, which feature Jack and Will in *ACTION POSES*! Swinging swords and whatnot.

    I never had any REALLY awesome sheets, however I did have a Garfield sleeping bag that said ‘nap attack sack’.

  10. Ben says:

    I never had those crazy Pokemon/Power Rangers/Mickey sheets, I feel fine in a normal sheet with Teddy Bears on it 🙂

    When I was a kid I had a set of pound puppy blankets. Then a few years ago, I was talking to my sister and discovered that one time during a sleep over her friend and her friend’s boyfriend slept in my bed….and when I say slept I mean “slept” *wink wink nudge nudge*…long story short: My pound puppy sheets were defiled *cries*

  12. YeahYeah says:

    I am a sheet person too, I love a nice set of sheets. I don’t mind spending a little bit more for sheets that are nice. Really, you pay $20 for a t-shirt you wear every three weeks. It’s worth the extra money to me for something I use every day.

    One a side note, a neat little tip I have picked up: If you buy striped sheets, it will always be easy to orient your sheets. I always hating having the hunt for which side was the long size on the fitted sheet, even if it only did take 12 seconds. Now, I just make sure my stripes are vertical.

  13. Yawgmoth says:

    I use a sheet on my mattress, but just use my comforter. I have a full size bed, but a king size comforter. I could wrap myself in it like 3 times over and have some left over. Great for when I get a girlfriend who steals all my freaking blankets in her sleep. -_-

  14. kenshin620 says:

    I just have regular pattern sheets. I like striped ones the best so you can tell which way they go on.

  15. Seraphine says:

    Biff didn’t have many girlfriends
    growing up, did he?

  16. Foxfire says:

    Never had “kids” sheets. I’ve always had, as long as I can remember, normal, boring sheets.

  17. Magical Nurse Ban says:

    I hate when that happens…danm sheets. >_

  18. FriskyF says:

    I slept on 101 Dalmation sheets till I was like….14. >.>…..Then I went to Cocoa cola…..Even though I’m a Mountain Dew kid. D:

  19. DEC says:

    have 1 – 3 white sheets with a row of hand made lace at the top, belonged to my grandparents when they were alive. of course i have others to but mostly white ones.

  20. DEC says:

    we had some flannel sheets at home when i was small remember them being nice to sleep on.

  21. i have nothing but itchy blankets

    my sheets are covered with POKEMON

  22. The monkey of Love says:

    Is it tool week again?

  23. Reg says:

    I like my Simpsons sheets… and I have a twin sized bed and a queen sized bed so I often get my sheets mixed up. XP
    And why doesn’t Biff just plant the sheets and let them grow bigger?

  24. MasterMenthe says:

    I got it! I got it! 😀

    I’ve never had the kind of sheets you guy’s had, then. Mine were always plain, and maybe sometimes pastel or floral. No Idea why.

    I guess they were cheap?

    Another idea for this comic: “Biff suddenly realizes where his wallet had gone on his trip to the mattress factory.”(or you can replace that with ‘on his prize-ticket trip to the nearby mattress factory’ or ‘factories’) 😉

  25. MasterMenthe says:

    Double post…..

    Is it weird to prefer sleeping on the floor?

    In general I have this strange urge to go through a cycle of: Sleep on bed w/covers, sleep on floor w/covers, sleep on floor, sleep on bed, sleep on bed w/covers, {initialize int Loop; Loop = var sleepCycle + counterInfinite;}.

    I love programming. :] (only a beginner though, as shown by the lack of actal ‘code’ in that thing :p )

    I am going to regret eating a bowl of black cherries then drinking cranberry juice, but it was worth it. now biff is going to sleep at an angle from now on

  27. Laminack says:

    I had transformer sheets when I was young too!!!! God, I wish I had hung on to them. Knowing how insane people are, I probably could have pulled a couple grand off of them on Ebay. =]

  28. MOD says:

    used to have a favourite pillow as a kid, it had a puppy that was asleep with little ‘z’s coming from him. it was so cute. awww, always made me sleep really quickly aswell cos it felt strangley more comfortable than a normal pillow cover

  29. Garrett says:

    And now he’ll be sleeping on a tilted bed because he cut off the legs with that side!

    YeahYeah: I like that idea. I should get a striped sheet for no-fuss alignment too.

    What covers do I have? Whatever we have around here, which includes plain sheets and a flowery blanket. I was able to snatch my sister’s Lion King pillowcase after she moved out, though. When that’s unavailable, I have a flowery pillowcase.

  30. I have a queen-sized bed because I sprawl out in my sleep. I worry that, if I get married, I might accidentally kick my husband in my sleep.

    I also have a bunch of pillows and blankets, so I have the bed to myself.

  31. Nikanaiko says:

    Wow, that took me forever to get it! xD ^^;

  32. Sarah says:

    My Peanuts sheets were my favorite as a child. I sleep on a Transformers pillow case right now! It has Optimus Prime on one side and Megatron on the other…who wants to sleep on a villian though? I also have a Finding Nemo pillow case, but the cartoonish Nemo freaks me out so I only sleep on the Dory side which means it is much more worn out.

  33. jykcor says:

    hey! feb 7 is my birthday!

    nice comic. i usually have my sheet on my matress for like 3 days before i cant stand fixing it anymore and rip it off.

  34. greendrag13 says:

    doesnt Biff have a water bed?

  35. Alice Love says:

    I hate sheets. I remember sleeping in my first girlfriends bed, and she has to have the sheets short cause she feels trapped otherwise. I need to have them extra long so I don’t feel the mattress. It was awkward sleeping with her =l

  36. TCC says:

    I don’t think my sheets like me. every time I put them on my bed the next day or so they have some how come back off again, and I’m too lazy to put them back so they stay like that for about a month. they’re deffinately not too small, but I can’t figure out why they have to keep trying to escape my bed…

  37. BrainpanSonata says:

    My sheets always try to eat my socks while I’m sleeping. I wake up every morning to find that they’ve pulled them off in the middle of the night and tucked them into the far corner to munch on later.

  38. SurveySays says:

    my mom didnt get themed sheets. she got ones with crazy colors and patterns. she thought it was cute. i’d end up focusing so much on the pattern that i’d start to see things in it and get nightmares. when i got older the first pair of sheets i bought for my new bed was a solid blue color. unfortunatly i’d become so accustomed to patterns that i then had a nightmare that i was drowning and i had to go out and get different ones.
