In Nick's office Santa Swap game, Nick wound up with a Forever Lazy bodysuit. Have you seen these things?
Naturally, he donned it immediately. One of his colleagues snapped this photo.
I had seen pictures but I'd never felt one all up close and personal. I certainly didn't know anyone who owned one, nor aspired to spend the day in something that doesn't even have to be lowered when you have to use the facilities.
Not to imply that I'm above this sort of thing, but, uh...
Then Nick gave me the socks (there are matching socks!), which are spectacularly soft and fuzzy and warm. They look like Grover feet. They're kind of like wearing little blue feetmice.
I imagine. Although I assure you I'd never actually thought about wearing mice.
Anyway, he said the whole suit is like that inside. Which, after the socks, so made me want to get all naked and put it on immediately. Seriously. Really kind of terrific.
Plus, he said it was so warm! Although he did have clothes on underneath. He wore it the other day while we watched Brideshead Revisited in our TV room, which is approximately as cold as my memories of ice skating at Christmas in North Dakota.
So I huddled under a fleece blanket up to my nose and he wore his fleecy suit and was plenty warm. And then eventually he stuck is legs under my blanket.
His ankles were cold.
Turns out the suit shrunk in the washing, and now it's a bit too small for him. The backflap for convenient bathroom use is nowhere near his bottom - rather inconvenient if your goal is to really and truly be lazy in your Grover outfit.
More importantly, however, it cleaves his manly nutsack in twain.
And thus the short shall inherit the earth. Or whatever the expression is.
So what do you think?
A. Horrifying. Should be given to Goodwill stat.
B. Comfort above all.
C. Keep it, but don't tell anyone.
D. Put it on immediately and take a picture for my amusement.
Warm fuzzy blue hugs to all!
