I used to want to hide in my clothes. The less they touched me, the better. But now I'm okay with clothes that fit correctly. And swimming in pajama pants is awfully uncomfortable. Especially on the occasion when I sleep in them. I toss and turn and my pajamas usually stick to the sheets so that they are nearly wrapped around backwards on my body when I try to climb out of bed.
So my favorite pajamas make me just a little uncomfortable around other people because the top is low-cut enough to reveal the area of my chest not yet covered in freckles because it does not see the sun. And the shirt comes up in the back to reveal an equally un-freckled swath of skin. But if I'm around other people in my pajamas, that usually means I'm going to be sleeping near other people, in my pajamas. So my flamingos go with me.
