We recently began work on that thing that rests under the mattress and drapes downward to hide dust/mess/monsters under the bed.
Right now you’re thinking, “Wow, Kelly, you usually have no shortage of words on this blog; why are you calling it ‘that thing that rests under the mattress and drapes downward to hide dust/mess/monsters under the bed’?”
Well. Because, my friends, Laura and I call it different things. She calls it a “bed skirt” and I call it a “dust ruffle.” It has become a joke, actually. One of us will say, “Hey, you want to work on the dust ruffle this week?”. And the other will say, “Yeah, let’s get going on that bed skirt.”
In order to resolve this question, I am posting a poll in the sidebar where you can all tell me what you call it. I have my suspicions on who will win (her), and I’m just letting you all know that if and when that happens, I will promptly blame my backwards New England-y speech on my mother (hi, mom!).
