I have this blanket that’s super soft and warm. My mum gave it to me years ago. It’s just perfect.
Except in one corner there’s a tag that’s sort of scratchy and itchy. So I always make sure that’s at the bottom where it won’t irritate me.
Invariably when I’m cold and I grab the blanket in the middle of the night, it’s all backwards and I end up with the tag in my face or by my arm and end up having to turn the thing all around to get it right.
Every so often I stop and think: I could just cut off the tag. Then there won’t be an itchy corner, and I will never have to worry about whether or not the blanket is right-side-up or up-side-down.
But I never actually cut off the tag.
Because I am worried that without the tag…
I won’t actually be able to tell if the blanket is right-side-up or not.
