The Japanese – who have a penchant for inventing everything – have come up with the Boyfriend’s Arm Pillow. It consists of a headless torso and a stuffed arm that curls around the sleeper for comfort during lonely nights.
I think I’d like to have this pillow, and not because am desperate. On the contrary, this pillow would be lucky to have my naked body wrapped around it every night. I am tired of Felix the Cat already. The Boyfriend’s Arm Pillow will be a good companion since it doesn’t snore, doesn’t squirm and will not make me pregnant just in case it is aroused from all my hugging. Most of all, it will still be there in the morning and during all those times when I just want an imaginary someone to have and to hold.
A gadget site has come up with a good review of The Boyfriend’s Arm Pillow which retails at US$77.: ” They’ve eliminated all the sounds and smells of the standard boyfriend and have even added an alarm clock which gently shakes the arm when it’s time to get up.” Suggested improvements to the pillow include a vibrate mode and an audio contraption that will feature simulated sounds such as a slow heartbeat and post-coital chatter that says…”you were good, baby!”
