Pajamas Are For Sleeping

pajamas

Pajamas belong in bed. They are not meant for public. Pajamas worn in public convey unspoken messages about the wearer, such as: “I just escaped from a hospital,” “I’m too lazy to get dressed,” “My whole house burned down last night with all my possessions,” “I do not want to be taken seriously,” “I am mentally unable to handle the challenge of caring for myself,” and “I’m trash and don’t deserve your respect.” I know, pajamas are comfortable, but so are leggings, and who wears those in public…oh, never mind. Please keep the pajamas at home, along with your slippers, blankets, stuffed animals, pillows, and other sleeping accoutrements. That goes for everyone…no “pajama day,” no pajamas as a Halloween costume, no pajamas for casual dress, etc. Let’s maintain some societal standards.

Ms. Tinsley is a high school English teacher, who has been in the classroom for 20 years. She has worked as an Instructional Coach and Assistant Principal, but she returned to the classroom to continue being with the students she adores. She has published a book entitled, "Teachers Talk Smack," available through Amazon.com. She has garnered much critical praise with this original work full of charming illustrations and humorous anecdotes about the joys of teaching. Well, she has garnered one review from her best friend at work on Amazon.com. And the book really is the opposite of the joys of teaching. She is currently working on her second book about teaching. By "working," I mean roughly brainstorming in her head.
