Sweet, huh! Well, coming from Bel Ami, it should be…
My analyst (Dave!) informs me that I have adapted some strange rituals in bed, if left to my own devices. I hadn’t realised it, but of course he is right. In our own bed, we have adopted personal ‘sides’, as most couples do. Mine is on the left, viewed from above with the pillows at the top. But in any other bed, even if alone, I will always go to that side. When I climb in, I always face the edge of the bed, hunching up into the foetal position with right hand under the pillow. After a short while, I straighten out both legs and then turn to face the opposite way, but not by rolling over. No, I, weirdly, twist under, face to the pillow. My right leg is bent, the left is straight, and the right hand remains under the pillow. I’m pretty much face down, head turned to my right, where Dave will be. And then I slide my left arm right under my chest, lifting the hand to touch his own right side just above the hip – for he will almost always be facing away from me at the time. Which means, I guess, that he has his rituals too. I need to analyse him. Later.
But you don’t need this information. Let’s play the pictures game instead.

As for all this bedtime stuff – nothing to get your knickers in a twist about!
