So, it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep. As I lie here with thoughts of nothingness running through my head and a really boring romantic movie playing in the background, I thought of this great, fabulous topic that you're all going to love: pillow talk. Yes, pillow talk. Okay, maybe it's not all that exciting, and maybe, just maybe, the random thoughts in my head mixed with the ooey gooey romance in the background has me lonely enough, that without writing it down, I'd probably be questioning my sanity. You know that moment when you get beyond tired, and your thoughts start drifting to places of worry, and 'what ifs' and your mind can't keep up with the chaos. Eventually you're wide awake, and wondering why you didn't take the same advice you gave to your daughter 3 hours ago, and think of a story with rainbows and unicorns. No, I'm completely sane. Don't question that now. I have better moments for that. Many. For now, let me deflect these 'tired thoughts' into my very own pillow talk with you. So for those who aren't exactly sure what this term means, pillow talk is that cute, fluffy, random conversation you have with a person you love or after some intimate encounter. No, I know what your thinking, and sex doesn't have to be involved at all. It generally happens in the bedroom, but that's not a law. Well, maybe in California, I don't know. You're not allowed to chew bubble gum in the bathtub there, so you never know. See, my pillow talk is priceless, ladies and gents, write this shit down. My point being, pillow talk is usually a moment of beauty where all your real problems subside, and you forget the mayhem brought on by the realities of life. It's a moment between two people where you escape the world and enjoy each other's company. It's really one of the finer things in life. It's the type of moment where memories are made, bonds are built, bigger pictures are forgotten and little things that make life wonderful, like stars, flavored jelly beans, and little sweet nothings, allow you to giggle like a child. Comfort. It's sheer comfort.

All strong relationships will have pillow talk. My grandparents were the masters at it. Remember when relationships were something to fight for and people worked things out instead out giving up when it got hard? That's what they had. I remember staying overnight at their house, and with my room being right next door to theirs, I could hear their pillow talk. It was innocent, sweet talk about how their day went, who they saw, and little gossipy topics that really just brought them closer together. I didn't realize it at the time, but now that I think about it, I realize just how beautiful it was. They were married for over 60, and they are what I would call an exemplification of true love. A rarity in a world where nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. Maybe they had the key. Maybe our relationships just need a little less arguing and a little more pillow talk. Anyway, you think about it. All this pillow talk has me ready for some sleep.
