This is me surveying a PILLOW MENU that was left on our nightstand from the cool environs of our terrace overlooking the the Rio Duormo. I have this playful, conspiratorial streak about me that's a weird source of pride; I'm like a middle schooler at a sleepover, always looking for ways to turn life into a mischievous game. So when I saw that there was a complimentary pillow menu featuring 6 different pillows that we could order through room service, I decided instantly that we had to try them ALL. "But we need to order them gradually so as to not attract suspicion," I recall explaining. Exactly WHAT room service would be "suspicious" of I still don't know-- this is a free service and when you stay at places like @theyeatman in Porto (Michelin starred restaurant, world-reknown spa, insane views, best breakfast of my life) you're entitled to abuse it a little. Still, I got all giddy and excited ordering 2 pillows at a time over the course of several hours until we eventually had 24 pillows on our bed. We systematically tested all of them while reading the fancy menu descriptions aloud and agreed that the best one was the "Acquagel"-- a "molecular structured" pillow that's both breathable and durable and made with blue gel memory foam on one side, which gives it "a pleasant feeling of freshness." It had just the right ratio of Firmness to Fluff. When the staff made the bed the next day it was hilarious-- we came back to the room and dozens of pillows were lined up and fluffed in two straight rows from the headboard all the way to the foot of the bed. It's funny to see something goofy and excessive presented with such no-questions-asked austerity, like "Sure, this isn't weird, let's just make the bed like normal even though this stack of pillows is taller than Shaquille O'Neill." Being a chambermaid seems wild, to see everyone's idiosyncrasies regularly on display like that. You likely become a master at assessing cultural norms. Meanwhile, in our room, the pillows were lined up all the way to the foot of the mattress like 2 plush rows of dominos-- they took up the entire bed.
