Snuggie Ingenuity!

Last night temperatures dipped to 40 degrees in the mountains. In the terrifying chaos of Monday’s events, I forgot to bring long pants. What to do? Someone said, “necessity is the mother of invention.” I say that anyone who wanted a Snuggie could save big bucks by turning their bathrobe backwards.

Well, I have good news for you. Anyone who wants a warm Poncho/Pantsuit combo can have one by wearing their Snuggie upside down.
I have always wanted my blog to have the kind of quality, life changing information given by my friend, high tech leadership guru, Michael Hyatt. The following information takes one step in that direction, except this not for high profile leaders. This is for cash strapped, fashion challenged folks like me, caught at 10,000 feet without long pants.

Steps to staying warm on a cold mountain night.

  1. Steal granddaughters Snuggie.
  2. Turn garment upside down.
  3. Step into the arm holes. (This may take more than one try)
  4. Tuck the neck of the Snuggie into the waistband of your shorts.
  5. Pull the back of the Snuggie up behind you and over your shoulders.
  6. Tie bottom corners of Snuggie to corners at Snuggie top.
  7. Brace yourself for gales of derisive laughter and a significant amount of discomfort.
  8. Do not allow your picture to be taken from directly in front or back.

Because of His grace yesterday. I can laugh today.


  1. I love it Ken! Very stylish too. I’ll keep this fashion tip in mind as we do have a number of those Snuggies in our house too.
    BTW, so glad and praising God that your granddaughter “found” her grandfather who was lost the other day.
    All the best!

  2. You. Are. Priceless. Truly, the Lord gifted you with amazing abilities – HUGE capacity for LOVE and an even HUGER (is that a word?) capacity for LAUGHTER, that you so willingly share with the rest of us, to ease OUR days a bit. Thank you Ken. And Praise Him the ‘adventure’ turned out as well as it did. – NOT the forgotten long pants adventure; the lost little one adventure!
    Yours in Him

  3. LOVE THE LOOK! I can’t believe the ingenuity.
    PS so VERY VERY HAPPY about the amazing reuniting of granddaughter to “missing grandfather” God is Great

  4. Now that IS attractive! I dare you to do some stand up comedy in that amazing gettup! 🙂

  5. Ken,
    I just had to share this latest post w/my husband; read it out loud to him so he could laugh out loud too! I occurred to me that this blog post IS in fact for high-profile leaders; IF they camp! Or, if they need to be reminded that necessity is the mother of invention! And it was life-changing; if you hadn’t invented Snuggie-Pants,you might have frozen to death! THAT’s life-changing…glad you’re an inventor.

  6. Laughing out loud – with 100 degree temps in Tulsa this week, it is hard to imagine anyone being cold right now. LOVE the look.
    So happy things turned out well with JJ. God is amazingly great.
    Thanks for the laugh.

  7. You are so funny! You don’t know me but your video was shown all the time to my bible class when I was in highschool. My husband thinks you are one of the funniest people and is always saying some of your jokes. Thanks for making us laugh and giving us a break from our awful bible teacher.

  8. Hmmmm, don’t think it will make it to the Paris Run Ways!
    But I think you could sell the idea to Cabela’s or Bass Pro shop!!!
    Way to funny Ken!! The bears in the woods might get a chuckle or two from it,also :)!
