During the boring period on a plane when “anything with an on/off switch” must be turned off, Kingfisher and I like to browse through the SkyMall catalog in the seat pocket. Recently, we contemplated an item called “The Slanket.” As have, apparently, so many before us.
The Slanket comes in several different models and many different colors. We wondered why some colors had ordinary names (“pink”, “purple”) while others were more, well, colorful (the skull and crossbones patterned Slanket was called “Walk the Slank”). We modified the “chocolate” color Siamese Slanket (for two) to something more evocative.
