This morning, I woke up and dragged my ass out of bed and into the kitchen (with a brief layover in the bathroom).
I was only wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and my legs felt cold, so I wrapped our Cubs throw blanket around my middle.
I took the milk out of the fridge, the cereal from the pantry, and a bowl and spoon from the cupboard…and then attempted a balancing act of carrying them all over to the table in the living room, while still holding the Cubs blanket around me.
It was then that I realized something. I NEED A SNUGGIE!
With a Snuggie on me, I could have had both hands free to carry my breakfast paraphernalia into the living room. I would not have had to struggle! (I know, I know, I could have made more than one trip from the kitchen to the living room, but that would just be too much work at 7:00 in the morning.)
For weeks now, I’ve been saying that I want a Snuggie—and I’ve only been halfway kidding about it.
Now I’m not kidding at all. I want one.
I love love love the fact that when the Snuggie came out, it was just a big joke—and now it’s attracting somewhat of a cult following. And I am jumping on the Snuggie bandwagon!
Here in Chicago, they actually have organized Snuggie pub crawls—where everyone has to wear a Snuggie during the whole thing. I SO want to go on a Snuggie pub crawl.
Then the other night on David Letterman, he had on the band Weezer, and they all were wearing special Weezer Snuggies! I kid you not—check it out! (You can even buy your own special Weezer Snuggie online.)
I really get a kick out of seemingly goofy products that for some reason people start to like.
Remember legwarmers? Why the hell did those ever go out of style? I would so totally wear leg warmers today.
Hmmm…apparently I just like products that make you warm…and leg warmers seem like a pretty good way to keep your legs nice and toasty.
I could just see myself walking down the street wearing leg warmers and a Snuggie. I might not be the picture of fashion, but hell, at least I would be warm!
P.S. In case anyone is wondering, I’m partial to pink Snuggies.
