I found an article online this morning that reports that as many as 1 in 4 men takes a stuffed animal to sleep with when traveling. Women do it too. I guess if I was a business traveling road warrior I might do it as well. I mean you’re away from home, in a strange room with no one for company. Maybe the animal is just a comfort, a reminder of loved ones left behind. I do know that I’ve been with folks who were traveling with childhood stuffed animals. Myself I don’t sleep with a stuffed animal, but I do have to cop to the fact that I have a couple on the dash of my car. Our cross country roadtrip demanded mascots, that’s them on the left.
