The incessant commercials are wearing our resistance down on getting a Snuggie- it's a blanket you can WEAR!

Yes, commercials have been doing this, grabbing our attention, for over four decades...that's why I stopped watching TV and started working to educate families about the impact of just watching/buying....mostly, commercials are the best made parts of the programs, costing enormous amounts of money to produce and they fail to deliver what they promise. Our kids believe what they see on TV and beg to have it all.....
The most important part of our lives is how we pay attention to people, relationships, not the what we are told on TV!
Thanks for sending this out....

The past five years, I've been wishing for a snug-sack. I had one back in the 1980s, when I was living in an awfully drafty house. It made winters a LOT more bearable, especially because it kept my feet warm. I'm not sure a snuggie would do that nearly as well.

The house I'm in now is snug enough, but the problem season is summer, when my wife runs the air conditioner to near-freezing temperatures. Mostly, I can tolerate that, except for my feet. They get SO cold.

I was in a collision in the 1990s, and I have a bum hip, limiting my range of motion. I can reach my right foot with either hand, but only one hand at a time. Kinda hard to put socks on with just one hand....

But I wish the makers of the snuggie well. If I had any sense, I'd start a company to manufacture snug-sacks....

I must say from the perspective of someone who lives in an old and very drafty building; those look extremely tempting.

It's so wrong, it's right.
