this trend toward blankets that are about five feet long and three to four feet wide.
Moms gave me several made of that fleecy fabric woven from old Coke bottles and medical waste polyethylene. I never though much about the lack of length. Having read the labels, I knew they were all made in China. I figgered five feet was long enough for their poduct development teams....
Recently, though, I brought this topic up at dinner, and was told that I was talking about "throws", not "blankets".
Are they called "throws" because one is inclined to throw his legs and feet around in an effort to warm them?
