I was surprised my freshman year of college when girls brought stuffed animals for their beds, but so many did that I quickly realized I was the odd one out. The attachment to cuddly inanimate objects goes beyond cute, and there is usually some sort of story, a history, to the attachment.
I don't know how I missed it, but last week results came out after Travelodge asked 6,000 Brits if they still bedded G-rated plush animals. One in three said yes, calling it "comforting and calming." Are you still attached?
