Last weekend while visiting the Tracy’s, Rachel said to me, “Did I tell you what Ben gave me for my birthday??”
“Uhhh, no,” I said, “another Slanket?”
“Even better!” she said.
After shuffling me back to her room she pulled out a “Forever Lazy,” which is basically like an adult onsie and about three times cooler than the Slanket.
I gasped. I laughed. I immediately wanted one. Then she told me he had ordered a few so I could have one.
“No way!” I said.
Before I knew it we were zipping up our “Forever Lazy” suits and parading around the living room.
Whether or not Rachel would approve of me posting this picture in such a public domain is of no consequence to me right now because it deserves recognition.
Before I posted this picture I looked back through some of my old photos trying to find a “normal” picture of Rachel & I to post above this one… you know, something really flattering and cute. No luck. Pretty much every picture I could find (going back all the way to 2007) has us involved in some sort of antic or another.
We are usually either wearing Halloween costumes, flaring our nostrils, pretending to be Charlie’s Angels (with Mel), eating food, drinking cocktails, pregnant (and not drinking cocktails), holding children, whatever. So consider this photo pretty representative of our character when we are together.
Not bad, ehh?
I leave you with a poem inspired by my new “Forever Lazy” and “Twas the night before Christmas.”
This winter while my son is all snug in his bed,
With visions of sugar plums dancing in his head.
And Daddy in his comfy clothes, and I in my “Forever Lazy,”
Will settle our brains for a long winter’s nap.
Editor’s note: If you, too, would like to own your own “Forever Lazy,” please visit the following website: https://www.orderforeverlazy.com/ I’m telling you, it’s going to be like the Chia Pet or of the Ove Glove of Christmas presents in 2011.
