A BLANKET that once lived in a household disliked summer parties or any other feasts during the other months of the year, and every time the sheets, pillow cases and quilts in the wardrobe threw a party, she simply sat in her corner and slept.
"About time you came out of mothballs", a pillow told her one day that the housewife took her from the closet and placed her on the bed. She, then, got annoyed and decided to have some fun for the first time in her life. Searchingthe calendar, however, she didn’t come across any upcoming name days or feasts.
So, she decided to have some fun on her own by throwing a party. She bought balloons, chips and plasticglasses,as wellasrefreshments,and madesureto decorate the room accordingly. She even printed invitations and handed them to the sheets and pillows of the house. Much to her surprise, however, no one promised they would come, only telling her that ‘they might consider it’, as until that day she had attended none of their parties.
When the time for the party came, our good blanket got very sad to see that no one turned up. She burst into tears, and as there was no one nearby, she simply sat near the window and observed the snowfall outside. Many hours passed and she cried all by herself, until at some point, the housewife entered the room.
As soon as she saw the snow, she took out another two blankets from the wardrobe. "Looks like it was our time to come out of mothballs, too", they told our good blanket and suggested, as she had put so much effort to set up a party, that they have fun by themselves, without the sheets and pillow cases that didn't show up.
After enjoying themselves, they even became good friends, as good timing is everything....
