So, last Thursday after I did a thorough house cleaning I decided I deserved new sheets because I need additional reasons to stay in bed all damn day (see Tuesday). So I head over to my bestie Overstock.com and buy 800 thread count sheets for our king bed for $99. Next day, Mr. P and I are at Bed, Bath and Beyond and lesser thread count sheets are $70 EACH (flat and fitted) and I feel completely justified in spending $80 at Old Navy on a new dress and other 'necessities'.
The sheets arrived on Wednesday and Mr. P opened them.
Mr. P: What is a split king set?
Me: (as I look at the package and feel the sheets) A flat sheet and a fitted set? Remember at BBB you had to buy them separate?
Mr. P: Oh. Should I put them in the wash?
Me: Yeah, I am done sleeping like a peasant on regular sheets.
(From the laundry room)
Mr. P: Fuck.
Mr. P: Split means the fitted is SPLIT into two twins or whatever and I already put flat sheet in the washer with soap and water.
What the hell is wrong with me? How do I not know that? Plus when I looked at what I ordered, the NON-split king sets of 1000 count sheets were $20 less. So...anyone need a pair of sage split king fitted sheets?
Oh, and would you have known what that meant?
