Carrington Gets a Snuggie

You know, it was bound to happen someday.
The collision of Carrington and the Snuggie.

I remember seeing commercials for it a couple years ago.  The Snuggie.  People just looked so lame sitting there on their couches in their retarded backwards robes.  The thing even came with a free book light.  But I was in denial. 

I have always been a secret Snuggie luster-after-er. 

If you’ll notice, I’m pretty much wearing a jacket, coat, wrap, or sweater in almost every picture and/or video when Seth is (most of the time) in a t-shirt and jeans.  It could be 80 degrees outside, and I’m cold.  I don’t know what it is about my genetic makeup: I can’t ever seem to get warm.  In the winter, I freeze because it’s cold outside.  In the summer, I freeze because everyone and their dog cranks up the air conditioner to sub-zero temperatures.  So, inevitably, year-round, I end up dressing in layers. 

I have accepted that it is my lot in life.

So this Snuggie thing, in my heart of hearts, would really be the answer to the questions I have been asking all my life about my chronic coldness.  I have dropped the hint in many a conversation, hoping that one day I would receive one for my birthday, Christmas, just because…but to no avail.  It doesn’t help that I’m much too cheap to shell out $20 on a backwards robe for myself. 

A week or so ago, my dear, sweet, darling-of-a-brother-in-law presented me with the one piece of blanketry my heart longed for the most: my very own Snuggie. 

My brother-in-law gave me a Snuggie!

It came with a book light just like in the commercial!

It even comes with its own book light!

It was love at first sight.  I pretty much had that thing on the entire time I was in Louisiana (and if I’m honest, some of the time in Florida.  Florida.). 

Dearest brother-in-law, you’ll never know what happiness and contentment that little gift has given me. 
Thank you from the bottom of my now-warm little heart.

    I received a Snuggie for Christmas from my wonderful son, David. Mine is green because he must know it is my favorite color. I live in Florida and have used it a lot, for I, too, am always cold. I can even get my hands warm with this – I just stick them in the pockets. Wonderful gift. Thanks, David. You are so thoughtful.
