Redoing the Pillows

Aside from the substantial weight of the filling, cotton eventually packs down necessitating the visit of the people who remove the stuffing, fluff it up and restuff the mattresses or pillows. Here the man is beating the pillow to settle the stuffing.

both "g"s sound like the "g" in "aggies".

Pronounced: menag-ged
