After 26 years of blissful marriage, I have perfected the sublime art of the incremental cover creep. See, if your covers are stolen and you
attempt to yank them back, that only results in a corresponding clutching reaction, and unless you want to seriously injure your loved one, that's not
a viable option. Besides, once you're asleep, the probability of awful things happening in retribution geometrically increase.
Enter the incremental cover creep (ICC). Take the covers in your fist and slowly close it, incrementally inching it toward you. Your
opponent will not sense the sudden loss of covernation, and will continue to sleep. Keep this up for above five minutes, and when you've finally
recovered your covers, finish by clenching your fist and turning it under your body. Sleep well. No need to cry havok. You are fortified in your
personal cover vicegrip.
Of course, this doesn't protect against the counter-move --- the swipe-from-feet gambit. That requires a whole other order of tactical operations.
