Snuggie Blanket and learned helplessness

I've been accused of having learned helplessness. Fortunately, I don't have the actual condition. What my friendly teasers meant was that if I needed something and someone offered to do it for me, I'd take them up on the offer. It used to drive our receptionist nuts (but she still got the paper clips for me).

Having said that, one might think I'd like to own a Snuggie Blanket. And I guess I wouldn't mind having one. But I'll never buy one. No, no, ha! Not because someone else might, but because I hate to see people like me needing products like these for the reasons given in this commercial.



Do you know what humors me, besides the little joke that surprised me above? "Super large, one size fits all...perfect for children, too." (Umm...see 01:04) That and the press-and-open book light.

Am I really that helpless?

So I need to confess that I own something very similar to this item - the Slanket. It's different, I swear. It's much thicker and softer and I love it. I often have poor circulation in the winter so sleeping in this thing is amazing. It's probably my favorite blanket,not going to lie.

However, one size does not fit all. And that commercial is cheesy as all get out. Yeesh.

Good thoughts, though. I'll keep that in mind next time we play the card game "scum".

Yes, and you can show off Slankey when you reach the high levels of Scum society. The rest of us will look on with envy, bullied by your privilege.

(If you have an extra for me, bring it.)
