ABOUT ME

About me: I'm a 40-something mother to a pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our tween Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler Cam, and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). I'm a freelance graphic designer and writer.

It got me wondering, what would happen if we tried this at work?



Yesterday when I got home from work, Junior was hanging out in his diaper and Chuck was lounging in his underwear. When I inquired as to why no one was dressed, Chuck told me that henceforth, Friday will be known as "no pants Friday."

Kinda makes Hawaiian Shirt Friday seem tame. Kinda leaves me speechless.

And what happened to Dress Down Friday, where you wear jeans to work? I'd be too cold with a No-Pants rule...

Mary Anna said...

In our house, that's pretty much any day that doesn't require leaving the house. Thing 1 would never get dressed if I didn't force it!

Suzi said...

That would be fun. I like wearing things that are comfortable and don't require leaving the house.

That's too funny! Princess Nagger loves to run around the house in her underwear...she'll be all dressed and ready for just about anything - then a short time later, stripped down to her underwear...no matter what the season is! ;)

I wonder if she'd limit it to Friday's based on Chuck's declaration of 'No Pants Friday'... ;)

Why not? Certainly cuts down on laundry! LOL!

You mean you don't do that at your work?

Most days are no pants day at least for my 16 year old son. Doesn't matter if he has friends over either. Daughter on the other hands usually wears two pairs of pants as she can't be bothered to take off the first pair when changing her clothes. We haven't needed to buy PJ's in ages since they both sleep in what they are wearing or nothing at all. And yes I have set the example.

Hmm, when I hear "no pants Friday" part of me says "what a great idea!" and the other part says "what, even at work?"

It's cute when they're little. When they start growing chest hair?? Get a shirt, dude.

The whole weekend was no pants Friday when I was young. I still remember the stares I got when going to Church.

Jaime said...

Wow, friday is No-Pants Friday in my house too! As is the weekend. And every evening after work as well. And we have Man-Sunday as well (where no-one takes a shower.... or puts on pants). It's awesome :)

we have PJ day here, the secret is to pull your wind pants on over your pjpants or under your night shirt, throw on a jacket just before the school bus drops off hte older kids. :P

No pants Friday at work would force me to wear a skirt, which I gave up a number of years ago...

Julia said...

The only difference I can see is that I don't really want to see most men in their underwear...however, most men would really like seeing women in theirs. So this is not really fair whatsoever!

Second note...my baby Ella 2yrs plus 2 months likes to strip down to just a shirt sans underwear. Then the boys run around pointing out that she has a butt in the front or other such nonsense. Thus underwear Friday would be a great thing for her to adhere too.

Happy Spring. Ribbit, Ribbit.

I'm not showing this to my hubby - he'd be all over that in a second!

Kathy said...

I don't have kids, but my husband prefers the no pants rule. In fact, he'd walk around the house naked 24/7 if I let him. He's worse than a caveman. At least they wore pelts. Geesh.

Skye said...

I like that idea! Munchkin and I, when we're the only ones home of course, tend to run around in only our underwear as well. It's incredibly comfortable, less clothes to get dirty, and face it, if you do get dirty our skin is very washable :D

See? I told you our husbands might be long lost twin brothers. Last week I *almost* snapped a pic of husband and 3 year-old daughter both playing Wii in nothing but underpants. I figured it would be inapporpriate for the blog, though, so I didn't bother.

Mrs. V said...

ROFL!! I think your hubby might be on to something. :)
