Duvets are certainly functional, come in a variety of styles and patterns, but I have come to the conclusion that their real purpose is to cover up a unmade bed. My mother never had duvets on her beds, when I was in the military we never had duvets. Hotels never have duvets, just the old fashion bed spreads. I'll bet that if you were to peek under the typical homeowners duvet you would find as I did, a pair of panties (knickers), a sock or two, a magazine, condoms, an apple & orange. All of these items are hidden from view with the duvet but would show a bulge with just a bed spread. I have come to the conclusion therefore, that neat and tidy people don't have duvets.
So, what do you think? Are you a neat and tidy person or do you use duvets to conceal your mess?
