The result of a 32 year personal study I have conducted.

1. Sensation of instant comfort is heightened during initial entry into bed.

2. Extreme contrast between bed and room temperatures isolates bed as one's "only option for warmth."

3. Higher tolerance for blanket stack is achieved, creating snug-as-bug-in-a-rug feeling.

4. Fine temperature control is gained by partial exposure to cold air in room.

5. This practice is perfected with the highly desirable "snorkelfoot."

NOTE: "Snorkelfoot" describes the act of keeping one's body under the blanket but sticking a foot out to cool off. Any questions please refer to my friend and snorkelfoot expert Tiffany Bradley.

6. Dependency on self-supplied warmth increases resistance to restlessness (lest the prized heat escape from the womb of comfort).

7. Subsequent comfort level results in sound sleep before nightly craving for Nilla wafers sets in.
