Knit Me A Beer And This Set Of Long Johns


When I lived in the far Canadian north I always had to wear long johns during the cold ten months of winter. I really enjoyed walking to school in the cold. I would have loved to have this set so that I could pretend I was secretly a superhero while trying to keep warm. No one would know until the warm days when I would shed my outer layer and reveal the superhero within. These would also be terrific to wear while riding the snowmobile because of the complete covering they offer.

It's never going to be cold enough to get me into them.

Do you know what I would give to be with a man who stripped down to batman long johns?! Practicality and good humor. :-) I love it!

Those would have been fabulous! I grew up in the frozen Canadian north. If I'd had those I wouldn't have complained as much as I did about having to wear longjohns.

You hated them when you were inside the school but OH BOY were they great on that walk home. I felt like I was walking on the moon and could stay out in the snow forever.
