Love Me, Love My Blankie

That’s Jeffervescent! – by Jefferson Airplane

In this house, we have a lot of blankies.

I am a very big fan of blankies. I like to hop and skip and tug the blankie in a big game that is a mystery to everyone else but a favourite for me.

Blankies are in fact part of the fabric (if you can excuse the pun) of the American Revolution. Thomas Paine, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States (although he was born in Norfolk), is credited with having whipped the rebels into action. And Mr Paine also wrote quite a few times about the importance of blankets. He even said people were a bit like small blankets, or something like that, because they can never do everything … just like a small blanket. If you try to cover your shoulders your feet poke out. And if you try to wrap up your feet your shoulders are cold.

But my blankie is better than a person. I think my blankie is more like a dog. It is always there when I need it, it is always ready for any game, it is bigger than life and keeps me warm and never ever misses a trick. My blanket can do everything.

The safety of my blankie? That’s Jeffervescent!
