I have noticed a new phenomenon. People don't want to get friggin dresses! Now I am not talking about the bloggin SAHM. We get a pass. Mainly because we have to schedule every aspect of personal business (including potty time) around our little darlings. I will be the first to admit I wear my lounging pants to go pick the kids up from school. Not a day goes by that I don't thing "Lord, please don't let me get in a wreck with these britches on". I hold my breath the whole .3 of a mile.
This is not the phenomenon I am speaking. I am talking about people (women) who wear pj pants to the grocery store. It seems like the times that I have seen this the woman was not thin...so it really stuck out. Hey! I am all about comfort, but I really don't wanta see Sponge Bob plastered across your ass. What makes a person think this looks acceptable to wear in public? Where are there husbands when they say "I am going shopping." Dean would says...you are gonna wear THAT. Not that he picks my clothes, but he does have common sense.
Apparently my son does not. The other day he was going outside to cut the grass, in PJ pants. Umm, try again skippy. Then I had to spend 10 minutes explaining to him why it was not appropriate to wear PJ pants while cutting the grass. Finally I had to pull out the "Go change your pants before I pull your eye brows off your face" threat.
It does not surprise me that he thinks it is ok. Have yall seen that stupid ass commercial where the chick is bragging about going to college in her PJs? Umm why is that a hook? I get the premise of the commercial. It is convenient for people who have busy schedules, but to little kids it is like "Cool I wanta go to that school! We don't have to get dresses!" Yeah that's great! What about when you have to join the real world and get a real job? Could you imagine going to a job interview in you PJs? Ha!
Oh! One more thing. This whole "Go to school in your PJs" thing is bogus. I have never been to college (I guess you can tell by how I write), but I would be willing to bet there are many pj bottomed co eds in AM classes at any given University.
We wonder why other countries excel. Maybe because they are not too lazy to get friggn dressed!
