SAMMY THE SOMNAMBULIST ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Sammy the Somnambulist," the Local Sleepwalker who yesterday wore a pair of Zany Moose Pajamas to Our Favorite Starbucks. "What a Photo Opportunity," I said, grabbing my camera phone and following him at a safe distance to the coffee counter. I was practically writing the Blog Entry in my mind -- "Local Nincompoop has the Fashion Sense of a Moose" -- when something took me by surprise. Just as I was about to get the perfect shot, Sammy turned around to face me and said, "I like your shirt!" I was shocked. The man whose idea of good taste is a Repeating White Moose Pattern on a Bright Blue Background had just complimented me on my shirt. "Really, it's terrific," he continued, "Very cool, man." For the record, I was wearing a tie dye shirt, a gift from my parents when we stopped at Anna Maria Island last March. "Why thanks," I replied, "And that's some pair of pants you're wearing. They look -- err -- comfortable." He looked down and then, judging from the shocked expression on his face, I think he suddenly woke up. I didn't stick around to see what happened next. They say it can be dangerous to wake up a Sleepwalker ...!

Reminds me of a talk sjow hostness years ago. She came on-air with a gray treed jacket, white blouse, from the waist down, in her half slip and black high heels.

Those pajama bottoms may be ugly, but it looks like a good cut....straight leg with a cuff.
