An Ode to my old Pajamas

O, old Winnie the Pooh pajama bottoms, you were the best. Until the other morning when I woke up with my left butt cheek hanging rather unexpectedly in the breeze, you were my most favorite pair of pajama pants.

Your softness was unbeatable, like brushed silk, even though you were made of cotton. I guess ten years or so of constant washing will do that to fabric. It also will eventually produce said tear above.

You didn't bunch up at the crotch, a very important feature for pajama pants. You hung loosely and comfortably, rather like harem pants. Over the years, you seemed to expand with me, but in a good and comfortable way.

Even though you had little rips and stains from God knows where, I still loved you dearly, and all other pajama pants had to measure up to your standards. All of them failed, but now, you are gone.

I will have to make do with the ones that are cut a little too tight in the thigh, or ones that bunch up around my waist when I turn in bed.

I will probably endure many sleepless nights wishing I still had you, pulling the inferior pants out of unmentionable places and cursing softly. You will be missed, and the search for your replacement, however seemingly impossible, has begun.

Hilarity abounds. Thanks again for the humorous enlightenment.

Oh man I had one of these incidents just last week with one of my favorite pairs of jeans. I must have walked around for hours with a split up my cheek all the way to the belt loops. I didn't even notice until I was standing at the stove, stirring a pot of stew and heard my daughter laughing behind me. All of a sudden I feel her poke my bare buttcheek and then it occurs to me "Wait a minute, I have pants on...how is this possible". She's still giggling and I turn around to look at my bum..and there it is. The biggest rip exposing the biggest buttcheek I've ever seen!
