Mister’s in bed. Husband and I curl up on the couch for some cuddle and TV time. We switch to a stupid movie and settle in. Then, it happens. The commercial is for a head-to-toe fleece suit made for lounging. It shows adults and children of both genders enjoying the suit: while studying, at a sleepover, on the phone, at the big game. It sounds like a good idea. If you ignore that is makes the wearer look like a giant Tele or Cookie Monster (Mister is watching Sesame Street these days). Then it goes too far.
“Oh, no. Gotta go?” the commercial asks. “Just open the zipper flaps in front and back.” A woman demonstrates each flap. “That’s zipper flaps in front and back.” Demonstration again.
I lose it. Tears stream down my face as I laugh until my sides ache. How ridiculous!
What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever included in your writing.
