A Flannel Friday Five

Ah...a warm, snuggly Friday Five from the RevGalBlogPals!

1. What was your favorite sleeping attire as a child? And did you call them pjs, pajamas (to rhyme with llamas), pajamas (to sort of rhyme with bananas), jammies, or ???

My favorite pajamas (which we pronounced with the broad Midwestern "a") were flannel footies. Alas, my mother decided that the footies were too hard to keep clean, so at some point I transitioned to standard flannel pj's.

2. Favorite sleepwear put on your own little ones, or perhaps those you babysat? (Bonus points if you made it).

Not applicable. Although I do recall trying to fit our cat into an old onesie from my babyhood. (The cat did not approve.)

3. How about today-do you prefer nightgown, pajamas, undies, or au naturel?

In the warm months I prefer sleepshirts -- not too long, not too short. In the wintertime I switch to either a classic granny nightgown or flannel lounge pants with a long-sleeved T-shirt.

4. Silky smooth or flannel-y cozy?

Flannel all the way. I crave womblike warmth and security in bed, and flannel does the job. Victoria's Secret is for sissies.

5. Socks or bare feet?

In the dead of winter I often find myself wearing slipper-socks to bed; they also come in handy when one of the animals insists on a late-night potty outing.

Victoria's Secret stuff is for wearing about five minutes. Really, ouch! I just remembered after reading your responses, that I did wear t-shirts for a long time--not too long or too short. Sounds like Goldilocks--not too hot or too cold either.

A family member sent me a link to this video, "GoD and DoG", and I immediately thought of you, FT, and Gertie. It fits with the day's warm-and-fuzzy theme:

You wear Victoria's Secret for your significant other which could equate with Angela's comment about wearing it for five minutes.
