A pillowy mound of pillows.

I absolutely don’t get it!
Sheba, my secret spouse, insists we have piles and piles of pillows on our bed. Pillows that cover half the bed. And we are talking a queen size bed. What is Sheba trying to accomplish here? Are we to hide under them during a bombing raid? Or dig in under if a case of an earthquake? What earthly purpose do they fulfill? I guess only Sheba knows.
There is my regular sleeping pillow with just a white pillow slip. One pillow on top of that with a matching material as the bed cover. Then on top of that is yet another matching pillow cover as the bed cover. Then the same on Sheba’s side of the bed. And if that aint enough a smaller pillow atop all that pillowy heap. Seven freaking pillows in all. Then at night when one wishes to sleep the pillowy heap must be removed with only the one white cased pillow to sleep on. What the heck for!? Only Sheba knows. Does anybody else have such a mound of pillows atop their bed…and what for? All these pillows cost money. Money that could be used to buy a tank of gas plus a new car to boot. Ju
