Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk
Damn, I had a thing for Doris!
Returning on a several hours trip from the wake of a family friend, my wife had Sirius Radio tuned to the seventies channel.  A song came on, “Pillow Talk.” 

“I’ll bet you’ve never heard this song.”

“Of course not, you know I had three children all under ten in the seventies I missed that whole decade and most of the eighties!”

“Do you know what pillow talk is?”

“I know what it is in our house.”


"Let’s see, how about:"
“Can you turn down the volume, I’m trying to sleep, what are you deaf?”


“Very funny, turn it down.”

Then later.

“Why did you change the channel?”

“What?  You were asleep, I don’t want to watch “Family Feud” I want to catch up on “Wicked Tuna.”

“I Can’t sleep to “Wicked Tuna”, it wakes me up!”

“So, I have to watch a show I don’t like so you can sleep because my show wakes you up?”


“That’s crazy, and how do you go from sound asleep to wide awake just because I change the channel to my show?”

“I like the background noise from ‘Family Feud.’  ‘Wicked Tuna’ has too much excitement, it wakes me up...JERK”

“OMG!! OK, I’ll watch “Family Feud.”

Pillow Talk!  How the hell did they make a song about that in the eighties?
From The Urban Dictionary:

Pillow Talk can be any variety of things. It can be before or after being intimate, or without that at all. The point of pillow talk, though, is for two people to enjoy each other's presence through conversation, in a somewhat spontaneous way, but in a way that will let both parties go to bed with clear heads.

OH!  That pillow talk.

  1. Now you know why we don't have a television in our bedroom. You two crack me up.

    Have a fabulous day. ♪♫♪♫

  2. Hahahaha. That whole waking up out of a dead sleep because the channel has been changed... I'm pretty sure everyone in my family does that. We could be in a coma but if someone changes that channel we're wide awake!

    1. I wonder if that would work in hospitals?

  3. Watching t.v. (or your computer screen) right before calling it a day is alleged to keep one awake at night.

  4. Who knew Mrs. C had such tender sleep-ears! I can sleep through any show when I'm sitting in my OPC (Old People Chair) with the heater thing turned on.

  5. Pillow talk here usually involves hubby tucking the covers/sheets so I don't steal them from him in the middle of the night and me telling him to give ma little more of them so I can turn around then he can have the covers back. Not sure why he's so protective of them because waking up in the middle of the night he's on top of them anyway because it is sooooo hot here, even with the air conditioning running.


  6. And this is why there has never been a television in my bedroom, or any bedroom in any house I've lived in.
    I didn't know there was a song called Pillow Talk, I knew about the movie and I was sad to hear Doris Day had recently died at 97 after getting pneumonia.
    Three children under 10 in the 70s? I had three under times.

  7. Heeheehee! Pillow talk here is mostly telling the doggone cats to move over, they are bed hogs.

  8. TV was and still is a no-no on the belief that bedrooms are for sleeping in||

  9. Pillow talk is OK as long as one is not talking in one's sleep!

    God bless.

  10. you right i never heard this one ,must be interesting though ,not more than your post though :)

    when we live kids (10 to 18) specially
    it is quite a task to find time or space for FAVORITE THINGS

  11. If I remember correctly, Doris and Rock's version was much more romantic but yours is funnier. Still waiting for the Cranky and Mrs. TV reality show. I'd watch.

  12. There's pillow talk and pillow arguing...who knew????

  13. In this house, pillow talk is usually about if "Friends" or "Seinfeld" or "Fraser" should be on for falling asleep.
