BECAUSE YOU EAT IN BED
First let us say that we do not encourage eating in bed. Sleep experts say that the bed should be used for one thing and one thing only -- SLEEP. (OK, 2 things -- you know what the other one is.) That's to set the mind up for sleep, yada yada, whatever.
But it can't be denied that a pint of Ben & Jerry's never hurt anyone, and when you couple that with a good period costume drama (did you guys see Belgravia???) and a cozy pair of pj's, you're about as close to nirvana as it gets here on earth.
Hubs on the other hand eats things that crunch and leave crumbs, for pity's sake. We are not amused, and in NO MOOD to vacuum the bed at 11 PM. It's times like this that a waterproof blanket adds greatly to our domestic tranquility. A quick shake banishes all traces of his transgressions and we can toss the blanket on the floor and deal with any lingering sticky snack residue in the morning.
