@sarrible @haleykscissors I get my towels from Target because you can get the bath sheet size for like $20. I splurged on some LL Bean flannel sheets awhile back and they are the BEST.
@haleykscissors It’s amazing how much more luxurious your daily life can feel with nice sheets and nice bath towels.
@mikepope Yeah, right now I’m working in-house with writers who are mostly also in-house, so we can do a few rounds of back and forth to make sure it’s right. Not everyone has that luxury.
@mikepope Apparently I was not already following you, which is a surprise to me. Rectified.
It’s often much easier for me than for them because I have the benefit of being able to take a few steps back from the subject. They’ve always been immersed for hours, at least, and usually far, far longer.
