Steve Eaton: The quest for the perfect pillow could lead to superhero status for one sleepless man

Published: Saturday, July 20 2013 3:00 p.m. MDT


So, if you see me wandering about, bumping into things, with a pillow on my head, don’t worry a moment about me. My head will be protected. I wouldn’t make fun of me and try to trip me up, however. That would be foolish. Do you want to spend your life nervously looking up every time you pass by a tall building or bridge?

Who dares make fun of “Pillow Head Man”? I like this idea. I could be like a very relaxed blind superhero. And now I’m seeing my giant water-filled pillow with new eyes. Maybe I’ve discovered the perfect pillow after all. I just hope I don’t have to throw it away.

You’d better hope so, too.
