So as I was sipping my first cup of coffee this morning, trying to wake up and waiting for my joints to un-stiffen, I ran across this important news: “Kate Middleton Won’t Name Her Favorite Piece of Clothing.”
Well, jeez, Kate! (I mean, Your Majesty!) Why not? The whole world, stunned and saddened by too many news articles about the terrible, heartbreaking, tragic and catastrophic devastation in the Philippines, waits with bated breath. We must know! Surely you have a favorite piece of clothing!
I know I do. Here, let me demonstrate how easy it is to answer this burning question.
My favorite piece of clothing is—wait for it—pajamas.
Yes, pajamas. Really. Because, think about it, what article(s) of clothing is more totally comfortable than pajamas? Oh, the thin, soft knits. The cozy flannels.
The cool, slippery silks and rayons. I would never have known I look good in red if not for the gift of Christmas pajamas! And some pajamas are just so pretty! Oh, the nightgowns! The sleek loungers!
The only pajamas—and the word “pajamas” doesn’t quite fit them, anyway—I don’t like are those short, silly ones called “teddies.” They make grown women look infantile and ridiculous. And they usually have scratchy lace on them, which is a real no-no in my book.
So, stop being so prim and diplomatic, Kate! Tell the world what your fave piece of clothing is! We’ll try to muster up a little smile as we donate to the relief efforts in the ravaged Philippines. Because, really, what’s more important?
