“Ooooh the ends of the loaf of bread are my favourite bits,” “I get off on the sound of nails being dragged down a chalkboard (as if that still happens in 2019),” “public toilets? Love ’em!”
But I’ve never met a single person who likes the sound of snoring.
The one thing that unites all of humanity is the general disdain shown towards snoring and it’s pretty frustrating that almost everyone does it.
Obviously some people are worse than others and after sharing a room with him, I can confirm that Joshua Rogers is a silent sleeper.
As for me though, it’s anyone’s guess. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t but in general, I’m very self-conscious about the possibility and I’d like to avoid it as best as possible.
So with that, I might call in sick tomorrow and head to Lidl as early as possible, as they’re now selling anti-snoring pillows for half the price available elsewhere.
The pillows work by supporting your head in such an angle that your airwaves are in their optimum position, allowing breath to pass through soundlessly.
The pillows will set you back £7.99, which is much better than the £18 prices available in some retailers, so there’s another thing that will help you sleep better.
Reviews for the pillow range from good to bad, really, with the good ones being:
“According the wife it has reduced my snoring significantly. Takes a few sleeps to get used to it.
Also saved me a few broken ribs as the wife has stopped punching me during my sleep.“
“Bought this for my boyfriend as we moved in together and he’s possibly one of the worst snorers I’ve ever encountered.. has worked well from the night he’s used it and no more snoring, just some loud breathing but it’s a million times better! Thanks“
And the bad ones being:
“Didn’t help with my snoring And I found the pillow very uncomfortable to sleep on“
“Wasn’t at all what I was expecting it’s a basic pillow with a dent in it.”
Make of that what you will…
