      If you think it’s stupid, wear regular clothes. No one is making you go in pajamas. Personally, I think wearing pajamas would be fun, warm and comfy! Clothes are clothes. I have plenty of warm Christmas PJ’s I would love to wear to this! Furthermore, it’s been acceptable to wear warm pajama bottoms to the store or other places for 20 years. Where have you been?

        Maybe I’m just old fashioned. I find it distasteful for folks to wear PJs to the store – looks too much like internet photos of people in Walmarts. Also the logic of “because people do it” doesn’t make it appropriate. Besides, nightwear is typically loaded with a bit of “night dirt” according to a past article I’ve read. Yum-yum, I want that around my groceries!

    I’m going to be there in my Fredrick’s of Hollywood bedclothes. Is that ok with the promoters? I can help paint some faces too if you want. I’ll start down at the Scotch & Vine.

    Pajamas and legal marijuana. AWESOME ! What a fine example to set for the youth. Way to go Des Moines. Slowly creeping to the level of White Center.
