The Dressing Gown

Ah the comfy dressing gown.

There is no more apt uniform of sloth than the dressing gown.

Merely owning one is a sign of hope.  A signal of slovenly intent!

Dressing gowns accompany the state of doing nothing, but what are we actually doing when we're doing nothing?

THINKING, that's what we're doing.

Society fears the population with time to think.

Populations like that have been known to change things.

This is why the dressing gown is the true uniform of REVOLUTION.

In some far distant point in the future women and men will marvel at the day the seats of global power were finally over-whelmed - by an army of people in dressing gowns.

This post has me feeling a little special since your reply on the last post says I nudged you along to post it.
I typically would call your dressing gown a bathrobe but I get your point. Yes busy people don't always have extra time to think but extra time is not the problem. It's the willingness and desire to think. I have seen many people, both relatives and friends, who just hear something that fits their current thought and they run with it as if it the certain truth. Stopping to question why and looking into the source of the information is important.

Yes, I do some of my best work dressed in nothing but pajama bottoms and an old Tshirt....the constraints of undergarments and society left in a heap on the bedroom floor :)

Love the thought of this being our uniform for change!

Now that's an image! I'm all for comfy though rather than suits and heels. PJ bottoms and t-shirts rule my off-duty look.
