Many times I got mistaken for substitute teachers by the aides when I walked through the halls. I wore ties and button shirts sometimes, just because that was perhaps my own way of being an individual. (and because I think I looked damn good that way, too, heh...)

Ah... I always had my pride in HS, heh heh heh.


I never wore them to school, but PJs sure are public, and whenever one of my girl friends wore her PJs to school..... well... that was always sort of hot, because she looked really really good in them..... (sorry, just telling the truth!)

...................Anyhow....

I personally like the idea dressing well. But I never discriminated against people based on what they wore. Highschool is.... quite something else... I guess I'lll leave that part of the disccusion off right here.


As far as what I think is right......


PJs now and then is okay.
PJs all the time is not so good
No PJs ever, that's up to you

wearing what you sleep in to school..................



SOme people would look hilarious, some would look rather nude, some would look this way or that.

Really, though, I don't have too much of a problem with PJ pants, long pants, and a sweater, etc. Just like anything else, though, it should not be overdone.

I never thought people would talk about this for 4 pages, maybe I should keep trying

If anyone here will confess to wearing footy PJ's I will make a thread in which I will enumerate 20 things I love about George W Bush. And just the confession won't do of course, I need a picture (real not Photoshopped) posted right here in this thread. And that's footies as an adult not some picture of you as a kid.

Can we define pjs? I'm envisioning pyjamas as the type made of flannelette and printed in some sleep type theme, usually baggy pants and a loose button shirt-style? This is what we are talking about, no?

I think that's correct Angela, I think it's usually flannel type baggy pants w/ some sort of print on them..Spongebob or something similar w/ a t-shirt or the like

Ooh, wow. I definitely couldn't wear my Betty Boops any further than the letterbox! Although once I drove in my baggy trackie pants to McDonalds during a 2am pregnancy chicken nugget craving. And er, one other time when I wasn't pregnant, but figured I'd say I was as an excuse if a cop pulled me over....

I am stunned that if I wore shorts to bed, and a t-shirt, that someone would be offended if I went out got my coffee and dognut....

Hmmm....

I do not change my lucky underwear when the red sox are winning.....

Then why put your PJs back on and not some proper clothing?



And oh, I didn't mention showering and brushing teeth, but meant hygiene in general.

That's what I'm trying to wrap my brain around. This thread is hilarious.

Angie in Betty Boops.

I can think of few things that horrify me as much as sweatpants.

because pjs are more comfortable
and I don't put them back on, I put on clean ones

I guess I don't understand, what do you mean by "hygiene in general"?

Sounds to me like the Powers That Be who decide what's fashionable are running out of ideas...what next, are corsets and hoopskirts going to make a comeback?!
