A Slip of a Man

Slugger has a story about people being stopped from wearing pyjamas outside their homes. I stopped wearing pyjamas when I was 7, and I don’t intend to start again, unless I get hospitalized.

It seems to me that there are people who hate their jobs and wish they could be lazing about at home, and they don’t like getting reminded of that fact be people who see no need to wear work clothes. And then you have employers who don’t like their workers to be reminded of the fact that doing nothing has its conveniences.

Many’s a time I crashed out on a floor snattered, then woke up the next morning fully clothed and headed out to the shop for a bottle of lucozade. No-one ever passed any remarks about that, even though that may be considerably worse -in terms of hygiene and that- than going down the street in your PJs.

If they’re going to ban pyjama wearers from the streets, maybe they should also install cameras in people’s houses to check that they’ve changed their underwear.

Leave the Wee Willie Winkies alone.

    I don’t know – maybe it’s ok before 10am, but 7pm and you’re in your PJs in an off license?

    Time to take stock of your life mrs.

    Maybe they’re just out for a nightcap?

    I was the same until I became a Dad. Wearing PJs is a lot easier than fumbling for a t-shirt and trackie bottoms when you have to get up in the middle of the night to address the needs of a bawling infant.

    Ah, but (TMI alert) I have very hairy legs. I would never get to sleep in a pair of pyjama bottoms. Unless I started shaving my legs.
