pillow milestones

Today i threw away the pillow i've had at work for the last 8.5 years. Strangely, this is a bigger milestone than it sounds.

Once upon a time, I used to spend far too much time at work. I pretty regularly slept at Apple (when you live in SF, and are only getting 5 hours away from work in a day, you want to spend them ALL sleeping, and not any commuting).

I kept a pillow and a blankie in my office, so i'd be a little more comfy crashed out. After i resolved that i was never going to sleep at Apple again, i kept the pillow and the blankie around, as a tangible reminder of that oath.

And today, i threw away the pillow.
(But i'm keeping the blankie.)
