Don't get caught in your pajamas

Original post made by Dolores Ciardelli, editor of Danville Express, on Jan 28, 2010

Talk about embarrassing. When I read about the woman suddenly ousted from her home at 5 a.m. Monday in her pajamas, it gave a whole other meaning to the phrase, "Be prepared."

Dear Dolores,

Do you recall this line (way before your time), "One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know. (Groucho Marx in Animal Crackers, 1930)

Laughter for a Friday Morning,

Dolores, thank you for that reminder to keep some shoes by the bed; I'm off to do that right now!

Dolores, My best "in your pajamas" story is when I jumped into my car in my nightgown & robe, rushing to get my kids and neighbor kid to school one rainy morning. I got to my neighbor's house to find the kid had somehow managed to attach himself via his backpack to the corner stop sign outside his house. Picture me -- standing on the corner of Trotter & Appaloosa in my raty nightgown and robe, soaking wet, trying to detach the kid from the stop sign, as my neighbors drive by trying to pretend they don't see me.

It really did happen to me. Ah, those Alamo School days!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
