Now you know how much I LOVE my jammies...

After working in the market for years, I have seen it all!! But no one has believed me when I would tell them about the 'outfits' people wear to shop in. But thanks to my camera phone, the proof is in the pudding(or in the robe in this case) We have had some doosies! (let me start by saying this was taken at Ralphs and my name is Sophia) Last week this lovely lady came in to shop in her jammies and a bright pink robe. She completed the outfit with no bra, smeared under eye make up and bed head at its worst. Now it was only 8:30am and she did slip into some sandals to dress it up a bit(rather than her slippers) But my goodness? She wasn't running in for medicine or a thermometer,she was grocery shopping! When did this become OK? And I just love that I was able to snap the picture when she stopped off at the lottery machine on the way out to 'try her luck' It just completes the whole picture. We also have the middle aged ladies who come in with the "juicy' or 'pink' sweats. Maybe I am a prude but my take is... if you have graduated Jr high it is no longer acceptable attire unless in your own home. This is not cute!! I can still hear my mom saying" Honey you need to get up and get ready for your day" That meant we had to shower, brush our teeth, and get dressed before going anywhere. I taught it to my kids and I think it's a good rule to live by. OK, for the rest of the month I am going to be "good for goodness sake"No more of these silly posts. But I almost cant help it,people just give me so much material for my blog.

Oh my Gosh!!! and I thought the guy with the neon orange toenails was a FREAK!!! Good job, Sophia! Never would I, even if I was on death's door go out in public without looking somewhat presentable. Doesn't anybody have any shame anymore? What the heck!

Oh Sophia, I thought after 26 years in the grocery business I, too, had seen it all but I guess not. Did you really take these pictures yourself?? They are hysterical!! OK, so the robe lady is funny enough but the CUTE picture made me laugh out loud, so loud that Jim came in to see what was so funny! That is so definitely NOT CUTE!! Do people NOT have mirrors in their homes? The other morning I made a quick dash to Deseret Book Store to pick up a couple of ornaments I had seen there, it was an In 'n Out trip. I was in my "walking clothes" and no make-up...well, of course, I saw three people I knew, one of them I hadn't seen in months. When will I ever learn?? I sure hope no one was there with their camera phone! Maybe the pressure of thinking about "Sophia" being around the corner will cause me to do a better job of "getting ready for the day" before I venture out. Thanks for the reminder.

Fancy Nancy!I know when you ran into the store you were not in a robe! And I know you have never and will never go to a store in a robe. Your momma raised you right : )
Honest to goodness the pic was with my camera phone. And the cute one I found...I was looking for the juicy but couldnt resist this lovely one. Honestly I am not mean, I just think it's so funny! And most days I would be avoiding anyones camera.Thanks for the comment I love ya xoxo Cutsie

Oh my- that is the funniest post I have read in a while. Well, to be honest it is the first post I have read in a while! But now that I have a second to blog again, I came straight to your blog because I knew I would get a good laugh in. And Sophia delivered once again!! I love the pictures. I, too, wonder what in the world people are thinking when they go out in public sometimes. WOW! The CUTE butt says it all.

It almost seems delusional that someone would wear that. My daughter wears her Pink sweats to bed and she has a butt that looks "cute"~! Of course, I sit here in my velvet sweats and black t-shirt that I wore to bed and now I am working in them! So if you come to my house and knock, do not be surprised by what I am wearing. No candid camera shots, okay?? Okay? Karen did you hear me?? Maybe I should hide under my desk.

Thanks for the giggle.
