"My Normal Pajamas"
March 30, 2008 12:24 AM   Subscribe

The Pajamas Letter. I recently came upon a mysterious, unsigned letter in the deposit-envelope receptacle of a downtown ATM machine requesting that I draw a picture of my "normal pajamas" and send it back in an included self-addressed stamped envelope. Part Two. Slideshow.

Evidently the impulse to enclose a Watchtower pamphlet was resisted.

Who doesn't sleep with the pelt of some exotic rodent to keep their neck warm?

I'm loving the "KKK Onesie" and the Spiderman Underoos. And the rodent/cigarette/old-timey moonshine bottle ensemble.

Not one gown, interesting.

Awesomeness.

I wish more people would do this sort of thing - leaving odd instructions in strange places.

Dizzy, so does the last person in the slideshow.

*You find an ornately folded piece of luxurious-looking paper at your feet. You pick it up and open it. A purple and white daisy tumbles out. In neat, dispassionate hand-inked letters, you find the following written inside*

Hi. Hello. How are you? I hope you're well. Thank you for reading this message.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to obtain any flowers you can (without stealing them) and go forth, travel through your city, and give them to people. Not just to people you find attractive, but to people you see that you feel could use cheering. Wish them well. Smile. Be patient and courteous. Insist on anonymity. Record nothing - be fleeting.

Go home, and lavish your loved ones the same way.

What is it with the obsession about pajamas that people seem to have these days?

Everywhere I go I see people wearing pajamas out and about. I think I missed the new wave of dressing. I feel old and cranky.

Pyjamas are the new bacon.

This was fun! I just really wonder what the original intent of the letter was.

Fun, but I call BS on this being a coincidence.

I demand a MeFi Music song called "My Normal Pajamas."

Agreed.

hm. you'd think the art director and his assistant would have better drawing skills than a third grader.

It was cute until the guy who said "haha I'm a card I'll send them a KKK outfit with swashtikas on it." Funny if I was 10. Maybe.

I'm always surprised by how poorly most adult people can draw.

Wierd! I really love the writer's...erm...writing. He's very comical!

I've never really understood pajamas. You *put*on* clothes in order to sleep? WTF?

Also, I'll agree with the cursed filthy primate re: the KKK pajamas, it kinda killed the fun.

also, the swastika is backwards...
