Do you make your bed every morning?

Silly question - nothing to do with cooking - just wondering - do you make your bed every morning?

I do, perfectly, throw pillows and everything else on top.

Yep, every day. Except today--I will wash the sheets today.

If Ed McMahon ever brings my money, I will have the maid wash the sheets every day, and hang them in the sun to dry.

I even feel a bit funny leaving a motel room without making my bed.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I make my bed never. It's not that I mind making the bed, but it just doesn't seem to be as comfortable slipping into a perfectly made bed as one that looks slept in. Probably just a mental quirk of mine.

I don't "make the bed" in terms of smoothing everything out and tucking in the sheets, I shake the duvet and put that on correctly and call it done.

I pretty much do just when I have company or a date...
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

I make ours pretty much the way Alix makes hers and do it every day.

The bed gets made when the sheets are changed or when we are expecting guests. Otherwise, no.
