I’ve no idea what is the reason behind this weird habit of mine. Yours truly, together with my big brother, prefer a mosquito net than a blanket for sleeping. Actually, not just during bed times but most of the time at home, there will come a moment where I will just take my net and wrap it from my waist down my feet! Mind you, I am actually having a good time now doing this post with my net on my foot!
I can still remember this naughty moment during my first day at school when I was in Kindergarten. I left all my things in our house and packed my net inside my bag, put my bag on the floor and slip my feet inside it while my teacher is lecturing us. See how brainy I was back then!? It’s a tough one to plan such thing at the age of 5 and I felt so wronged being pinched by my mom when I got home. Still, that incident didn’t take my precious net away from me!
Until now, even while watching TV, sitting in sofa while reading books or just doing something where I will stay for hours, especially in my travels and trips, I’m with my security blanket! Should I say it runs in the family? I guess so, since my brother and her wife, together with my niece, always have a nice time joining together in their BIG mosquito net! LOL! Or maybe it’s just a hard habit to break or some psychological problem…??? But no, I guess not that one… I’ve known a lot of people having these same feelings towards their own nets! For any reason, I just love to scratch this soft nylon sheets on my skin! I just can’t explain the exact feeling! Through times, even when cold rush in and only having blanket can ease the chills, my net will be the first thing to touch my skin, followed with my blanket! I just can’t imagine living without my net!!!
