My Mother-in-Law reads my posts....

....which is why she gave me some really nice long-johns for my cold days at work.

Actually, they are too nice to be called long-"johns" - kinda silky-satiny. So I call them long-"janes"..

Really silky. And I'm really not used to silky. I'm a "100% cotton" kind of gal. Besides, I don't think they make Granny-panties in 'silky'.

But herein lies the problem - because I'm not used to the silky - they feel really, well, kinda nice.
Kinda "girly". Kinda young. And to wear them under my jeans - so soft and comfortable - well, it's like having a secret. Like "Hey, I'm wearing my silky-pajammies under my jeans" kind of thing. So I really, really like them...

Actually broke into the song sung by "Rizzo" in Grease....the one about Sandra Dee...where she says, "take you filthy paws off my silky drawers..."

But back to the problem. We have a really high bed. So to sit on the edge to put on one's socks take a certain amount of ...balancing.

Seems cotton on your bottom "grabs" while silk... slithers.....and slides...right off the edge of the bed I go.

Kerplunk. All #*&%$* pounds of me. On the floor. The wood floor.

I guess I thought it was some sort of positioning problem, because I got up and tried again...

Off I slide....again....

Sounded a bit like a sonic boom.

The pups were startled. I was startled. My mother-in-law who lives downstairs was startled.

Bless her heart.....

There's also another problem with wearing so many layers. I'm used to having just two layers on my bottom half - my panties and my jeans. So going potty requires just two layers to come off .

Jeans - check- panties- check - oh no! Those were just my long janes! There's another layer!

WHOOPS, S-T-O-P!! (didja ever notice how we can stop in mid-stream??? -) boy, that was a lucky save!

Geesh! Who knew....??

Everything in the winter seems to take more effort. Walks. Shopping. Dressing. Now potty?

I just need to get used to all this layering, the wet mittens, the frozen socks, the fogged-up eyeglasses, the hat-hair, the constant red face....

Hey, ain't I a beauty in my silky long-johns???

Boy, do I love winter!!

I think I'll take 2 asprin and rest a while....

You may want to keep a pillow on the floor for when you slip off the beds on your "janes". :) Ouch. I can just imagine the shock of landing on solid wood.
Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. It is written all over little Miss Ella's face in yoru pictures. She is a*d*o*r*a*b*l*e!!
Stay warm, stay unbruised and have a Happy New Year!

Loved this post. I had to quit reading to laugh. I had a visual of sliding off the bed. We bought silk sheets a couple of months ago thinking it would be romantic, but it turned more into a slip and slide. The sheets are now gone....

I know what you are talking about and they are supposed to be warmer than the old timey kind, plus less bulky. When my son went to Culinary in New Hampshire and us being from the south I sent him some. He said he felt kinda weird,but the warmth was worth it lol. and those darn things aren't cheap.

Love those silky long johns! I wear the tops under my work uniforms and they keep me all toasty warm. I don't wear the bottoms, as I don't seem to have any extra room in my breeches for more clothing. :o) Be careful sitting on the edge of your bed in those things... don't want any serious injuries!
