So I asked for feedback in the whole "Is an electric blanket totally white trash?" debate. I have given it serious thought and I thank my readers who responded with salient points. I have come to the conclusion that it is about a five on the White Trash Scale. It is clearly not high class but the truly poor would not have one. The argument I keep coming back to is that "rich" people- or non-white trash- probably buy down comforters and feather beds to keep them warm rather than a plug-in device.
But after all that, I really don't care... I crank my electric blanket up to 9 every night and when I climb into bed, I just lay there like a mummy and thank the Sweet Lord that someone invented them.
It's positively delicious.
