Back to my roots

I stayed up half the night gaming, and didn't get to sleep until almost 2 am. Then I had to get up at 6 to get the kids ready for school. I felt like crap, so I just threw on the big purple nightshirt (says 'Life is short. Wear cute shoes') that georgiaskydiver gave me, and a pair of shorts under it. I also have massive bed head. I figured it would be ok, because dropping the kids off at school is only a matter of driving up and telling them to get out :) I was also going to go through a drive-through somewhere and get breakfast.

By this time, I had COMPLETELY forgotten what I'm wearing. I just don't think about it after the point of putting it on. I remembered that last night Michael broke the handle for one of his drawers, so I thought I would stop at Wal-Mart and get new ones plus a few other things.

Only halfway across the parking lot did I realize I was in my pajamas.

Did I turn back? Hell no! It's Wal-Mart, for God's sake. I went on in and did my shopping! Got a few stares - it IS a Plano Wal-Mart, after all, but joke 'em if they can't take a fuck. :)

YAY for pajama day! After all, that is an official day of the week. And I intend to honor it today.

Wearing pajamas to the shrink? That will speak volumes :) Might help your case.

Yup. At first, I dressed up for the shrink, but after a while realized that she should probably see me as I really am.

And, come on, Walmart with a dress code?? It would go out of business. (The real question is what were you doing in that palace of evil, regardless of attire.)

Umm, it was next to the Jack in the Box? :) I was seriously only going to go through the drive-through until I remembered the other things I needed.

It really was one of those 'it was THERE' times.

Ah. The palace of Jack Sauce and Jack Balls. Next to satan's harem. You really did have a red car day. ;)

Absolutely! More so at home in Alabama than here, but still fit in pretty good. I don't get it. People here dress up, do their hair and put on makeup to walk their kids to the bus stop. My friends and I are lucky to put a bra under our pajamas to go in public.

Omigod, you are CRACKING ME UP!!!

Know what's sad? No one at our local Walmart would've looked twice at you. You were actually "dressed up" compared to some of the folks I've seen 'round here. No shirt, no shoes, no problem. ;)

In a local newspaper, someone was actually quoted saying that she was really glad that a Dollar General was opening because it's more casual (?), and now she didn't have to get "all dressed up like she does when she goes to Walmart!" Priceless!
