I have seen these snuggies on the infomercials and have always found time to make fun of them. Why can’t people just use a blanket? I do. They look ridiculous. I am not sure if they have more resemblance to a monk or a giant oompah loompah. Then there is the walking issue. Do you have to take it off every time you get up, or do you just walk around like a penguin? What if there is an emergency? I am not sure if I would be more worried about getting down the stairs safely, or someone seeing me once I got outside. And my husband…poor guy. I am sure before we were married he never anticipated me wearing sweats, his t-shirts or going an entire day with no make-up. There are so many ways to make yourself less attractive once you are married, why add the snuggie? Now, there is a brand called the slanket…maybe that would be better. It sounds kindof skanky, right? On one of the infomercials, it shows an entire family, each in a snuggie. How nice. You think no one was willing to get up and answer the phone during an episode of American Idol before? They never will now. Maybe I should just pull out my old pound puppy sleeping bag and use it. That would be the same effect. The only difference is I would have to hold it up when I walk around. It would be like a potato sack race. Sweet. Despite the fact that they are hideous, they do seem quite useful. Don’t I want to be all toasty while I watch tv? I know, I know. How could I? Wait, I have done it…I want a snuggie.
Doesn’t she look happy?
