When you go to a friend’s house to stay the night and get stuck with the scratchy blanket.
You know the one.
It’s made of wool.
It has satiny trim that tries to deceive you into thinking this will be a nice blanket experience.
But it’s not.
Every house has one.
It’s buried deep in the bowels of the linen closet, under some afghans and a comforter with the down coming out of it, but make no mistake.
The scratchy blanket is there.
And it waits.
Ours is Purple and its not like the one above it like you can see how its been knitted… you know when you can look through the criss crosses, and its so scratchy When I’m ill for some unknown reason she covers me with it… maybe its a test to see if I’m really ill.

I was looking up thing online for a quiz I’m writing and I came across this:
Nutmeg is a hallucinigenic drug which is regularly used to flavor such lovely things as custard tarts and fruit cakes. It is also a poison which will kill you while you suffer a variety of extremely revolting (and one or two not-so-revolting) side-effects on the way. Ingesting 2 grams of nutmeg will give you similar feelings to having taken amphetamines (the not-so-revolting side-effect) but will also cause nausea, fever, and headaches. Ingesting 7.5 grams will cause convulsions, and eating 10 grams will cause hallucinations. Eating a whole nutmeg can lead to “nutmeg psychosis” which includes feelings of impending doom, confusion, and agitation. There have been two recorded cases of death by nutmeg (one in 1908 and one in 2001).
Firstly how did I not know this? My sister used to use nutmeg in everything, I don’t know how I shall ever use it again!
But also, How are you allowed to buy nutmeg in Tescos And I’m pretty sure I bought some when I was 12!
