I love a good pair of pajamas just as much as the next guy, and I also love to make regular appearances in public. I don’t, however, enjoy seeing people with their pajamas in public. There’s a fine line, and I’ve seen it breached more than usual this year.
It’s just plain disgusting. I don’t care if you don’t agree; this is my opinion column. A question for all of you who sport pajamas to school: Do you wake up in the morning and say, “Hmm. I think I want to look like pajama hobo today”? Or does it just happen? Because I don’t know how you could willingly do that to yourself. Put bluntly, it’s ugly.
It’s not that difficult: from the hours of 8:00 in the morning to 3:20 in the afternoon, slap on a nice pair of jeans. After that, I could care less about what covers your hind end, but before then, please do us a favor and wear some jeans. (And in case you don’t know what jeans look like, I attached a handy little picture.)
I try not to judge people based on looks or appearances, but I become a little hypocritical of my rule as soon as I see people wearing pajamas in public; I become judgmental. I don’t want to get too mean, but when people wear pajamas to school, I honestly wonder if they care about life, because regardless of what you may think, people will judge you. If you want people to not think you are a sicko, go the extra mile and put jeans on.
I hope that my extremely negative attitude towards folks who think pajamas are the same thing as jeans will encourage you to wear jeans. The future of America depends on you; you can make the world a better place and stop the pajama pandemic from plaguing those you love. Pantaloons, knickers, slacks, denims: I don’t care what you call them, please, just wear them.
