Pajama pants.

That phrase seems to be so confusing to people, so let me break it down.  “Pants” is the noun of the phrase…the main subject.  While “pajama” is the adjective, giving more meaning to its noun…pants.  Much like a ball gown is to be worn at balls and a baseball uniform is to be worn at baseball games…pajama pants are to be worn to bed.

So why (why????) are so many people wearing them out and about?

Is the fact that the word “pants” is in the phrase throwing people off?  If you’re not a small child who’s parent dragged out of bed to go shopping or a hungover college student…then you know better than to wear pajamas outside of the house.  I just don’t think putting on a pair of jeans is that much effort and it completely raises the comfort level of those strangers around you…am I the only one put off by seeing strangers in their pajamas?

Let’s do better people!  Who’s with me?!

Have you and your honey discussed the holidays?  How are you guys planning on handling them?

I wonder if it matters how extravagant your fam is about the holidays…like, do you just chill or are they a big to-do?  For both The Mister and I’s families, it’s pretty chill.  Like we go to somebody’s house, make a plate, eat/chat/nap/repeat.  My family’s all over the country, so it’s nice that there’s not a big agenda because we don’t see each other very often and we just want to catch up.

How do your families react when you tell them that you won’t be around for Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanazaa?  I could use some tips for softening the blow, because I’m clearly doing it wrong, lol!  My fam is always quietly ticked with me when I give them the news.
