I've thought long and hard about this and I'm just going to say it. I think Snuggies might have their benefits.
For those of you who don't know, a Snuggie is...essentially...a backwards robe that extends like a blanket. For those of you who know what a snuggie is, I bet I know what you're all thinking. You're thinking about that ridiculous infomercial. Particularly the scene at the baseball game in which normal society, as we know it, is sitting on the bleachers and they're a little cold. On cue, enter the fast-growing snuggie-wearing society, all cozy in their snuggies eating hotdogs. They look completely asinine. But they are not cold. Not cold at all.
No. They've got snuggies.
And I've been there with you. I've watched that same infomercial and pointed out its ridiculousness. Most of these bizarre contraptions are a shocking primary color or a gaudy fluorescent pink and there seems no logical explanation for using a snuggie over a heavy sweater, a robe or a blanket. But I'm here to admit that I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Because when your heat goes out (as mine did recently) and it's essentially negative degree temperature in your apartment (as mine was recently) and all the sweaters and blankets in the world just don't work and you're shivering on your couch and you need to go into the other room to make dinner to add some extra fat just to keep you warm
