There was a laundry basket on top of this drawers set. When I was changing my sheets one night, I tossed a pillow up against the laundry basket, sort of half hanging off onto the top of the set. Mencken jumped up, pushed off the laundry basket so the pillow would lie flat, and colonized it.
I am now using a different pillow (one of the spares from my closet, intended for visitors who sleep on my futon) on my bed, since it is clear that this is now H.C. Mencken's pillow, not mine.
