Here in Hawaii the temperature has dropped and it is a balmy 60 degrees here this week. For you mainland folks, that means we are freezing and yes I know that some of you would like to slap me for saying that. I know some places are dealing with real winter and 60 degrees would be a heat wave. Just know I am not trying to be smug or rub in the fact that I live in Hawaii, I just need to set the stage for this subject.
You see, it is “chilly” here in Hawaii and that means people are digging out their “winter” clothes right now. The worst part of this is that I get to see a full array of flannel pajama bottoms everywhere I go. Yes, reindeer pattern at the commissary, leopard at the pharmacy and at my son’s school today I really scored by seeing red plaid, Sponge Bob, Scooby Doo and a pair of hot pink zebra bottoms. Seriously, what is this about? How hard is it to put on a normal pair of pants? I will never understand why some ladies think this is okay. I am not asking you to look like a beauty queen when you go out, but can we leave the pajama bottoms for the house? Is it me or does this seem to be something that is rampant on Army posts? I don’t think I see this many pajamas once I leave the gate.
Maybe I missed the memo for the Fall/Winter fashion season. Are pajamas the new black? Is it cool to wear clothes that go from bed to straight out the door? Should everyone know I sleep in Hello Kitty pajamas? I guess I will just have to be out of style, because I refuse to show the world what I sleep in…some things should stay in the bedroom.
