So, I am in my robe, steadfastly refusing to get dressed and go to the gym, do the dishes, look at the mini-quiches I made, or take out the trash. And I’m obviously very bored, even though there are friends on Facebook Chat. In a not-very-in-depth discussion about shark pajamas, I decided to do some research on Amazon.
Scratch that, I use Smile.Amazon.com, where a portion (0.005%?) of your proceeds goes toward the charity of your choice. I’m a dirty hippie who likes clean water, so I chose charity:water. Seriously guys, great job naming yourself. Real original. Great work tho.
Anyway, this is how I’ve stumbled upon a great way to procrastinate by writing this post, and upon a terrible, adorable hidden underworld of internet sales.
The innocent thing:
The seemingly-innocent-and-yet-somehow-sinister thing:
I selected the handsome man in the shark jammies, because he’s handsome and also I was looking for shark pajamas. But if you look, there’s plenty of adorable other animal jammies. I’d list them for you, but I don’t wanna. But trust me, they’re all adorable Asian models.
[This is the space where I would’ve put more weird stuff that I found online – and believe me, I found weird stuff – but I’m starting to get bored and kind of want to go put my quiches away before the cat eats them, so instead I’m putting this run-on sentence. Thanks!]
Now, it’s not that those jammies aren’t cute, cuz they are. They’re fun. But I feel like maybe they’re a little bit, weirdly, sexualized. And that makes me uncomfortable.
But not as bad as this thing I found when searching for hamster socks (my sisters really like hamsters, and I like fun socks. It’s not tiny socks for hamster feet, although that would be adorable).
I really just don’t know anymore.
