Other Half says you are never too old to have a pillow fight, what do you think of that? Yes, we do still have pillow fights, but I cheat, whack him over the head with the pillow then lock myself in the bathroom lololol. Any more pillow cheats out there?

We have pillow fights but Shrek hits too hard and you can guarantee if the kids join in someone gets mardy, lol. How could anyone be too grown up for this?

Oh, Shrek doesn't know his own strength. Yes, pillow fights are great fun. Mardy, that is a lovely word, is that the same as being a bit put out and irritable about it? If that's it, I get mardy every day lol.

Thank you! I know this discussion is about pillow fights but anybody who reads it now knows a dialect word too, very useful for trivial pursuits and crosswords!

Yes, men do tend not to know their own strength. You have muscles of your own now, so whack your brother back. Also plan B is my tactic, whack then run lololol.

I would say that you are never to old to have a pillow fight. My husband and I don't have pillow fights, though. Here's hoping that the pillows are big, soft, fluffy pillows.

Well, they start of big and fluffy. We have given up on feather filled ones though - way, way too messy lol.

Well I don't know. It hurts when People get carried away. I used to keep out of them, as I would always get hurt. I mean I don't even have to join in anything and I end up Hurt. But no I agree you are never to old for a good Pillow Fight.

Oh dear, there are some people who are unlucky like that. Everyone hitting out with pillows, bang goes an ornament or something straight at your head. Been there, done that!

Never too old to have pillow fights. I'm glad this is one of the things we don't have an age limit for. Well, even if they do, I probably won't bother. I still talk to my toy dog for that matter and I am in my 40s. But the good thing is nobody but God hears me because I live alone!
@shelagh77 (3643)

Oh yes, yes, yes! It IS something they have not managed to ban yet and it is such fun. I am so glad someone else talks to their toy dog, except I talk to the teddy lol. However, if you live alone, who do you have the pillow fights with?

There is no age barrier for something that soothes you or has been dear to you. As for the pillow, yes I have a favourite pillow and would never compromise on it. It also so happens that, only whne I sleep on it, do I fall asleep.

Well, you wouldn't use your much loved pillow, but take up a cusion or something, then. A pillow fight is when two people have a pretend fight, hitting each other with cushions, which doesn't hurt, and a lot of laughing goes on. When children have a pillow fight the objective is to make the pillow burst and make feathers fly everywhere!
