    What would it take to substitute a single word used for a trivial but (supposedly) so commonly used object for another, perhaps more appropriate word?

    The context could also elicit a debate about healthcare.

    Currently I don't take pills to go to sleep, neither of the tablet kind nor of the cushioned kind. I don't use any specifically appointed support for the head to help me restore my energies, I go with the whole body. However, I still, and have many times before, been reprimanded for choosing to go with the simplest bellow - a nice flat surface, the ground or the floor.

    I don't use pillows, but I still sleep in an unshapely mattress which requires of me nightly acrobatics, kinda hung, kinda fenced, cribbed and battered,

    I retract my statement on my choice to not use any specifically appointed support for the head. I still use the tip of a folded or scrumped blanket sometimes.

    Good life.

    The image is too foreign in comparison to my own experience.

    I appreciate the compassionate attempt.

    There is a cat in my house. It is not my cat and I am not sure how it got in my house. Not quite a kitten and not quite full-grown and it is black and white. I guess I have been home-invaded by a thug. I bellowed at it, but it ran away so now I have to go scare it toward a door so I can go to sleep. Like me not understanding how this cat got in my house, I do not quite understand what this thread is about, but felt that it has something to do with late-night stream of consciousness ponderings.

    Maybe the cat was there before you were?

    Did you build your own house?

    He could've been the first land proprietary too.

    We've got interest.

    No my house is older than me and I am older than the cat. Logic tells me that one of my nieces let it in earlier today and it has been hiding since my neighborhood is crawling with feral kittenish cats, but I don't want to be logical at the moment, so perhaps it came out of my hat. Mine is the first house built on this particular spot in probably forever because it used to be part of a farm that got whittled down to a subdivision over generations, so the first proprietor was probably a cow. Moo.

    I sleep on a couch; more support, and I like being able to elevate my feet occasionally. I do my own upholstering, and can adjust the firmness and the like to my personal needs, which is fairly stiff. The mattress on my bed is also fairly hard for most peoples' taste, but soft beds and chairs will ruin your back after a while, guaranteed.

    Yes, many of those are great, too.
