Mama is Buried Alive!

I now know what it is like to be buried alive - under pillows!  Last night, the kids and I had movie night.  Instead of watching the movie, my nine-year-old son decided it would be great fun to bury me under all the pillows in the house.

He started with the sofa pillows.  Ten of them.  He piled them up, so all you could see was my face.  "Bubba," I said.  "I'd really like to see this movie.  Could you cut out the pillow piling?"

"No, Mama.  This is fun!"

Then he found sofa cushions and added them on top.

"Uh, Bubba," I said.  "It's kind of hard to breathe in here."

He didn't care.  He just added more pillows.

I tried to knock the pile off of me, but it was too heavy. I succeeded in knocking the ones off of my head, so at least I could breathe.

"Bubba.  Enough.  You're going to end up killing your Mama by burying her under too many pillows!"

Fortunately my daughter had some sense, and removed the pillows (much to my son's dismay).  Otherwise I might have just died under that pillow pile!

  3. Bubba is indeed savage. But I am guessing unlike the real thing you enjoyed your "buried alive" experience.

    1. Considering how unique I am, it wouldn't surprise me if I eventually meet my demise buried under piles of pillows! ;0)

  14. Now that would be horrible for two reasons. One, being smothered to death is no way to go. Two, I'd miss you. Glad, your sweet daughter saved the day. :-)

  15. Ah, smothered by love!! Or, y'know, pillows ;)

    1. Which reminds me of the time I was partially buried by my son on the beach. Fortunately, he only buried my legs.

  19. Glad they let you get some air. That would not be a very good way to go.
