Seriously. I'm not kidding.
Why am I so deeply obsessed with this thing???
This isn't right! This is so counter to everything I grew up with. This is counter to everything I vigilantly fought long and hard for in the
strict aesetic lifestyle of my youth!
I still wear Doc Martens for chrissakes! I still slam dance! I still kick dumpsters every so often and dance to the industrial music on my music
player in the streets at 3am!
THIS MAKES NO SENSE!!!! WHY THE SNUGGIE?????
I know they're flimsy. I know. I know. I know. Overpriced and heaven knows I can't afford something like that even if I would actually buy one.
If I did, I'd have to go with the maroon and...
(AHHHH! THERE IT IS AGAIN!)
I'm pretty dense when it comes to being swayed by advertsing, I have rather ecclectic and specific tastes and prefer to buy things that will stay
with me over the decades instead of ending up in the donation pile but...this "snuggie" thing has me TRANSFIXED!
AND THAT CONCERNS ME GREATLY!
I've been studying human psychology and advertising for as long as I can remember, and I'd like to think I know every trick in the book when it
comes to advertising....and recently, I've been getting VERY, VERY keen on things I wouldn't normally pay attention to.
The other day I was at the drug store and excitedly grabbed my fiances arm and loudly blurted out: "Honey! Look! They have Sham-wows!"
Am I slipping????
Is this normal with the progression of age? Have the fires of my youth finally been tempered? Am I going to start collecting bizzare kitchen
appliances in my golden years I never use?
Am I destined to own an RV instead of a sleeping bag under the stars???
I'm scared of the Snuggie. I'm scared because I like it.
This can't be happening! I'm only 34!!!!!
