I shouldn’t have to write a top 10 list on reasons why I don’t want a Snuggie but here we are.
I can’t believe it has come down to this.
For whatever reason my boyfriend thinks I need a Snuggie ever since he saw a lady in the commercial knitting happily whilst wearing said Snuggie. We’ve actually had several discussions about this stupid blanket-with-sleeves and he keeps listing off reasons why I should accept the gift.
Some of his reasons.
- It has sleeeeeeeeeeeeves
- But then I can knit and be warm! At the same time!
- Why wouldn’t I want a Snuggie?
- I will look like a wizard (OK he didn’t actually say that)
As unusual as it is, I would not like a Snuggie so much that I have abandoned my usual Top Five List and upgraded it to a Top 10.
Top 10 Reasons why my Boyfriend Should Not Buy me a Snuggie for Christmas
AKA why I don’t want a Snuggie. For serious.
- The first time I heard of this blanket with sleeves, the reason cited for its purchase was: “wine, credit card, and late night television are a bad combination.” If that’s not enough of a deterrent, I don’t know what is
- They’re a fad. Plus they look cheap
- This guy says they’re made out of cheap material and not even long enough to cover your feet
- That guy also said the Slanket is better, as far as blankets with sleeves go (Idon’twantaslanket)
- This really is just a backwards robe. That is ridiculous. Why would you wear your robe backwards? Kris Kross is overrrrr
- If I’m cold and I would like to knit, or have a snack, or answer my phone, I will put on a sweater. Or knit one
- If I’m cold and would like to watch TV, I will use one of the several blankets I already own
- I was warned I should wait until the electric version of the Snuggie comes out next summer. The toasty. Next summer
- I look at Snuggies the same way I look at Crocs
- Even if my arms are warm…what about my hands?
Let this be a warning.
