Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
We’re back in our Fire Island share this summer, so I’m in the need of pajamas. In the morning, when we all roll out of bed, we spend some time hanging around the living room, drinking coffee, unpacking the night before, and planning the day ahead. A good sleeping costume must be cool (we have no air conditioning), relatively decent (various people pass through the house), comfortable, and, above all, fun. If possible, it should also be flattering, but really the first four qualities far outweigh the garment’s attractiveness. It’s a tall order, I know. Good luck to me!
