The newsroom was in an uproar yesterday because someone brought a Snuggie they’d purchased. As this person tells it, she bought it as a gag gift, but then tried it and immediately became a Snuggie believer.
So we watched her little fashion show, during which she modeled what the product’s makers describe as the blanket that has sleeves.  And looking at it in person, I realized that it’s essentially nothing more than a bathrobe that you wear backwards!
And they’ve sold something like 4 million of them.
I don’t have a bathrobe at the moment.  The one that I had wore out a good while back.  But I do have a little throw blanket that I picked up at Walmart a while back for about four bucks.
If I did have a bathrobe, and I was chilly, yet I wanted to read a book or watch TV and have a blanket and be able to have my hands outside of it, I’d just grab the robe, put it on backwards, a voila!
The only drawback is that if I didn’t buy the Snuggie, I wouldn’t get that nifty little book light for free.
