The Slice

It’s almost here

Yes, the Wear Your Pajamas to the Grocery Store Weekend is almost upon us.

Remember the three key rituals of the annual observance, which some in Spokane regard as a year-round event.

1. When encountering a fellow PJs wearer in a grocery aisle, quote the line from "The Big Lebowski" in which the elder Lebowski snaps at the Dude.

"Are you employed, sir?"

2. The Airing of Grievances. (Yes, this is borrowed from the Festivus season.) No violence.

3. Affect the expressive aspect of a drugged-out stupor. And recite another line from 1998's "Lebowski."

"Yeah well, that's like just your opinion, man."
