R.I.P. My Travel Pillow

R.I.P. My Travel Pillow

That’s just some promotional photo because I can’t seem to find an actual photo of my beloved travel pillow. For the past two years, she has been my sole companion on dozens of flights. Black, soft, easily stuffed in any sized bag… She has come with me on every photoshop brush tool line on the post below.

But now, she is just a memory.

At the Toronto Airport today, as I tried to stay alert in the waiting area after my flight was unexpectedly delayed AFTER I’d taken a valium, I accidentally murdered my pillow. Dazed in a nearby bathroom, I attempted to hold her in my left hand while peeing so she wouldn’t get placed anywhere with potential for germs or urine or whatever else was hanging around that stall. But instead, I accidentally dropped her in the toilet, which is where she still lies.

Rest in peace (or pee, as it were).
