Everything old is in fashion again

Via Fark, “Teens tell parents to wake up to pajama fashion – Yahoo! News

Parents can expect a withering look or an impatient wince if they remind their teenager to change out of pajamas before heading off to school these days.

This is new? Hell, it was all the rage when I was in high school. That and women wearing men’s boxers as shorts, with the fly sewn shut. The article goes on to talk about tights under ripped jeans … that’s all so 80’s!

Actually, I wore a pajama shirt to a college debate tournament, even. (Yeah, actually, a judge noticed and my coach was not pleased when he realized, but I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for that meddling judge!)

For the love of all that is holy, please do not bring back parachute pants. Stick with cargo pants, I’m begging you.

And, let’s be honest that the “withering look” and “impatient wince” has nothing to do with the pajamas and more about noise coming out of a mouth of authority. The one thing isn’t really about the other, in this article.
