you have no proof that I have ever worn these out in public

When I went back to work in June, I did a good gutting of my closet. It was, really, the only way I could justify buying new clothes – you know, ones that actually fit.

Out went the pilled black pants. Out went the too-short tees and the too-low jeans. But, I must now admit that something did stay. Deep in the bottom drawer of my dresser lives an old pair of pajama pants. Large, plaid, flannel, gathered, tapered pajama pants. Did I mention large? With that nearly at the knee crotch? Oh yeah, and huge, bulky pockets.

Because you never know when you might need to bring your wallet, keys and a small assortment of packaged snacks to sleep with you…

I don’t know why I haven’t gotten rid of these. Perhaps after ditching my old sweats and stretched out yoga pants I felt I needed something to wear in case I got sick or the heating broke. And… wait for it … they are comfortable.

As long as nobody sees them…

  1. I have a very similar plaid pj pant. And I have shirts to match! EEEK!

    But wanna know the double-EEK? I just ordered some plaid flannel pj pants from my son’s new school — that’s right, Mommy’s gonna wear embarrassing SpiritWear!

  2. Wow. Those are….pretty. Yeah, pretty, that’s it!

    Please tell me you’re giving those away!

  3. Nothing wrong with pajama pants. I have several pair. Tucked at the back of my closet of course!
