pillow and doing it properly.
I don't even own PJ's so first up I had to race into Best & Less where I picked up this sexy little ensemble for $10.80. It's a size too big but I feel confident Tracey will have it shrink it to fit me in a wash or two.
It was all a bit of fun at the office, but I noticed before any of the girls left for lunch they changed into normal clothes. I didn't: I needed to go to the doctors and then to the chemist so I took my kindle and walked out the door. I have a wife I'm especially fond of: I don't need to impress anyone.
I got some chuckles and managed to spread the message and hopefully we'll have a few strangers walking in the door during July to donate some dollars.
Walking up and down the main street of town I only encountered one person who felt the need to say anything derogatory.
"Oh my God!" a woman squealed as I walked past her. "I can't believe I let you marry my daughter!"
That's right, the only day in a month my mother-in-law comes into town and I walk past her in bed clothes.
"Hello," I said to her and leaned in to kiss her check.
She took a step back and looked around. "I don't think so!" she said.
Half an hour later, when I arrived back at work, the girls were keen for me to explain an odd story they'd been told about me chasing a woman up the road trying to snog her.
"That was Tracey's mum," I explained. Now I think about it this probably wasn't the best phrased answer I could have given.
Eventually my chuckling mother-in-law conceded to me kissing her check, but not only was Tracey's mum in the street to witness me in my jimmy-jams, she had Great Grandma Mac with her as well.
I don't know what Great Grandma Mac thought of my new look because she I don't think she stopped laughing the entire exchange, including when they drove past me a couple of minutes later. If laughter is the best medicine, after the dose I gave her today, she may live to 100.
Meanwhile, thanks to our very generous clients, our fundraising is off to a fantastic start.
