Does anyone else has a grandma that pretty much people-proofs the entire house? I remember my abuela used to have plastic-covered furniture, but I think she's okay with having people sit on couches now.
Oh! And plastic bed coverings were THE WORSE. When I was a little girl, my mother had bought my sister and I new mattresses, and we were not allowed to take off the plastic coverings. Those 90-degree nights in Florida, on a plastic-covered bed, were a sweaty hell.
But, plastic-covered furniture has its use, right?
Like -- keeping liquids, dirt, and potential stains off. Too bad it keeps people off them, too.
