Cute story here.  Just thought I’d share.  So my son over slept and was running late for work today.  My husband and I did our best to get him up for work, but being a tired 16-year-old, he wouldn’t budge.  He finally got moving, but was a few minutes late.  As I was driving him to work he asked me nicely to do him a BIG favor.  Of course being the sucker that I am, I said yes.  He will soon be off to college, so I cherish the chance to do for my son and make him happy.  Anyway, he works across the street from a Dunkin Donuts at a popular breakfast diner as a busboy.  He hadn’t had time to eat breakfast and wanted me to get him some donuts and leave them by the back door of the diner.  At first I balked because I was completely in my pajamas and slippers.  But then I figured teens go out in pajamas, so why can’t I if it’s for my son?  I parked in the lot, and sat there for a minute or two gathering up the courage.  I gotta tell you, it’s not easy as an adult to get out of the car and walk into someplace in pajamas.  There were people sitting and having coffee, and people on line.  I’m an adult – in my pajamas.  I was afraid of being judged.  Granted I had a sweater on top, but clearly my pants were colorful enough to be seen as pajamas and I had my slippers on.  But I did it.  I held my head high, walked in and quickly got my donuts and got out.  Phew.   It wasn’t too bad.  Well worth the thanks I got from my son.  He sent me a text immediately after he got the goods, and I am sure I’ll get a nice hug later.   There are probably some of you reading this who are appalled that I even did this, but at least now maybe you will think twice when you see someone out in their pajamas and realize they may just have a good reason for doing so!

Until next time…
