I have only met a handful of neighbors on my street. When I walk my dogs, it is rare that I stop and chat with someone.
I admit, I’ve become complacent.
Over the weekend, dressed to the hilt in my pajamas, it was time to walk the dogs. I had on no make-up but did take the time to match my checkered pants to my hat and jacket. All Cubs-themed of course and super-chic. I knew I was pushing what is socially acceptable when T.Puzzle commented on my attire.
“Your pants are super baggy,” he said.
This should have given me pause because he never notices these things. But, it did not. I simply zipped up my coat and headed out of my house with confidence. I was certain my streak of not speaking to another person would remain alive.
I have never seen so many people in my life!
Of course, all of them wanted to talk to me or pet the dogs. And, I had to stand there like a normal person and own-up to my ridiculous outfit choice.
So, my advice to you is this; if you want to meet new people, proudly wear your pjs outdoors in the middle of the day.
Your neighbors will pour out their homes anxious to meet you and/or evaluate your mental status.
Long live pjs!
