Are flannel "pajama" pants now a fashion statement?
I was at a local department store the other day (you guessed it...Walmart), and I noticed several women walking around the store in flannel pants. One had teddy bears on a powder blue background, another Sponge Bob Square Pants on a bright yellow background. Still another wore what looked like big purple dinosaurs on a lavender background. All wore tee shirts and flip flops, too. All pants were baggy and dragged on the ground, thus were soiled and sloppy looking.
Now, these were not teenagers; these were moms, or at least two of them had young ones in the carts with them. The kids were in tee shirts and jeans, not in their jammies.
I just wondered to myself," did these gals have a slumber party, or did they just get up and decide to go en masse to Wally World, and were too lazy to get dressed?" Maybe I am out of touch, but it seems like pajamas should stay at home. Along with sweat pants, yoga pants and lounge wear. I know that most people own at least jeans, and that has to look better than wearing flannel baggies that make one look larger than they are. Don't these gals ever look in a mirror. Maybe they are just too lazy to care.
Then today, there was a car stopped along the highway with the hood up. Standing there with a cigarette in one hand, and cell phone up to her ear, watching a guy poking around under the hood was a gal in...you guessed it, flannel loungers that were black with red chili peppers on them.
All that is missing from these outfits are tee shirts printed with "I have completely given up on life."
