|I know that I always wish I could wear jeans to bed!|
I only have to mention the words "pajamas" and "shopping" and I know what is coming. My sister can't fathom how much companies charge for pajamas. She thinks it is a total rip off to buy pajamas, and don't even get her started on the cost of children's pajamas!
Me? I am the total opposite. I love wearing pajamas. In life there are a few things that I think are worth investing some money in...trips to foreign countries, dental work, and comfortable night clothing. After a long day's work, when I know that I won't be going anywhere for the rest of the night, it's not uncommon for me to change into pajamas as soon as I get home. In fact, that is one perk of being single - I can wear pajamas whenever I like! And since they cover me nicely, and no one is touching my legs, shaving is on the bottom of my to-do list! (Perhaps, on closer examination, this is why I am still single. Food for thought.)
It's hard for me to understand what isn't to love about purchasing pajamas for yourself. They are so comfortable and can be very cute. It's so easy to get cheap, comfy pajamas at places like Target, Kohl's, even Sam's Club! When it is cold outside and your body is tired, it's so refreshing to slip on a pair of pajamas that are soft and warm. I mean, what is the alternative? Wearing a t-shirt and sweats? Yuck. Sleeping nude?
Actually, I have to say that I tried sleeping nude once. I wondered what the big deal was, and it was very hot outside. I lived by myself, why not?. I felt like such a rebel. Hot stuff, sleeping in the buff! But, it was not a good situation. I couldn't sleep well at all! What if there was a house fire and I had to race outdoors and I was naked? What if I had a medical emergency and had to call 911 and they found me naked? I'm also quite a sleep walker. I've woken up many times in strange places, doing strange things. Taking clothing out of that scenario just makes it worse. Imagine, me standing in the middle of the road talking about being the mayor of the town, totally naked.
I woke up all night long worried about my lack of clothing. That is unlikely to be something I will do again.
So, pajamas are something I will continue to invest in, and I think it's time that my sister did as well. I'm going to keep giving her pajamas until she becomes so addicted that she comes to "the dark side."
Are you particular about your night wear?
