I let out a big fake yawn at the dinner table in the middle of asking the waiter for the check. This is in front of my girlfriend, her parents that are in town, my boss, and a few co-workers. Why are we all sitting together? Good question. Let’s say I couldn’t find the vocabulary to say “no” to one of these parties earlier this week. I don’t know why I did this, the fake yawn. I actually do know, I’m not sure why I’m beating around the bush (aka—lying). I laugh to myself in my head “he he he he” (yes, when I laugh to myself—I snicker like a cartoon witch). What’s so funny? My prosthetic yawn is synonymous to the reason I’m doing it in the first place...I want to call out of work tomorrow solely for the inclination of wearing pajamas all day..
I’ve learned over time, you really have to ease into these things. So maybe the big fake yawn was a little much, but it got the point across—it’s early and I’m really tired. “Jim are you feelin’ ok?” my boss says. Perfect, my first mark. He doesn’t even know I just gave him this idea. I immediately thank the film Inception and the Academy for making this all possible. I hadn’t thought of any ailments yet though, and after letting out that big fake yawn, I wasn’t about to attempt a big fake cough or a CGI sneeze. I turned to him,describing my expression and body language as this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. “Ahhh” he replied “heard that’s been going ‘round”. I’ll skip you all stress of the rest of that story (I’m not giving you the complete recipe of how to get out of work). Let’s get to good stuff, me in my jammies.
Let me tell you something, I’m high-end pajama and loungewear personified. Just look at how I’m sitting on this couch relaxing, Circus De Soleil would be jealous. My guy over at Dawson + Hellmann sent me these on Monday and it’s all I thought about the entire week. If you have a sec, I’ll read a little note they left in the box for me Dear Jimmy (haven’t went by that in years, but cool) Dawson + Hellmann is a high-end pajama and loungewear brand that is not only of impeccable quality, but reflects our subversive wit (agreed). Born out of our mutual love of design, travel, and chillin (how me and girl found each other), we reference contemporary vices like sleeping aids, marijuana (don’t mind if I do), and sexual liberation (I’ll wait for her to come home), with a special élégance (that’s me).
And there you have it, a little lounging, the perfect pair of pajamas, a touch of Ferris Bueller, and all this work … I forget tomorrow is actually Saturday ... I’ll blame this one on the sleep aid weed.
