We don’t believe in coincidences. If we say “we’ve been working like a dog,” and then a dog barks, it is not just chance, but an event of extreme significance.
So when we saw this article about the Ostrich Pillow, we started to tremble with an almost religious fear.
Because earlier that day, we had read this article in the New York Times about sleep, and the growing practice of letting employees take mid-day naps to increase their productivity. Thus, we have the prospect of a post-lunch snore, and the perfect accessory to make that snore possible.
Do we care that the Ostrich Pillow resembles an enormous bug head? Or that it looks like it might suffocate you if you actually tried to use it?
No, we don’t care. Because the Ostrich Pillow allows us to sleep on the job. And that trumps everything.
