I foolishly went without even regular pillows for 6 years -- what was I thinking? Pillows are an amazing invention.
[2-panel monochrome comic illustration of a girl with a bun, sitting at a cluttered desk, under clouds of worry. In panel 1, she looks burdened and heavy clouds loom over her head, enclosing the word "WORRIES" in bold handwritten text. Panel 2 shows her in a medium shot, hugging a large pillow for comfort. In a lighter bubble, the text reads, "Learning that body pillows are really a necessary part of life," as she gives the pillow a light "squeeze." Comic titled "Instant Hugs."
