How should I lay my head on my pillow for a good night’s sleep?
When should I use two pillows instead of one? When should I turn
my pillow over to the cool side if I’m having trouble falling asleep?
Is there a thing such as too much pillow? When do you bring a pillow
to a knife fight? When is it appropriate to give someone a pillow as
a gift? Am I being unpardonably rude in punching down my pillow
before I go to bed? When my woman looks at me in bed does she
see me or the pillow? When applying for a post as a presidential
advisor, should I list my won-lost record in pillow fights? When I take
my pillow around the world to every exotic hotel room, how do I
explain it if my lover gets jealous?
My questions about martial law, fighting global pandemics, or
presidential impeachment I leave to my barber or the mailman. Any
other questions I have about my personal life go to my astrologer,
