The Snuggie: A Study Aid
One of the constant battles within my house revolves around the thermostat. My husband and son like the household temperature to resemble the Siberian Tundra, and groan until icicles form from the vents. I, on the other hand, enjoy a more temperate climate, somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 or 80. Since I am outnumbered 2:1, and our two cats fail to back me up to tip the scales, studying usually takes place under blankets while huddled on the sofa, and actual homework requires hours of shivering, or kicking my family out of the computer room so I can shut off the vents and function without tremors from the cold.
In today's mail arrived a gift from my husband: A Snuggie. You've seen the ridiculous commercials, and I've made fun of them like many of you probably have. This was a practical joke, complete with monkey faces on a sea of powder blue cloth. And yet, I donned this goofy attire with all the dignity I could muster, and...was warm. Despite the frost on the windows and visible breath in the icy air, I was comfortably, cozily warm. This practical joke gift could not have arrived at a better time; I've come down with the flu a few days ago and spent much of the past few days curled up under piles of blankets, much to the sorrow of my laptop which has overheating problems as it is. Motivated by the lack of cold-induced shaking, I've spent the better part of the day curled up at my desktop computer, actually doing homework. I cannot testify to the coherence of the papers I've written to try to keep up with due dates - cold medicine being what it is - but they're done. And it's all thanks to my monkey-faced Snuggie.
He found the deal on Woot.com for $1.99 plus shipping, and it's probably the best gift he's ever given me, diamonds and other pretty things included. I just thought I'd share. Now to start my Capstone paper. I wonder if I can work a Snuggie plug into the draft.
