Lay Me Down

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen.

Over the years my sleeping attire has changed as I've aged. Early on I slept completely naked, not a stitch of clothing, no constrictions of any kind.  Clean crisp sheets against the naked body has always been a wonderful pleasure at night. Sliding in between the sheets, feeling the coolness against your skin....what more can I say, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. However, over the years, I've slowly progressed to sleeping in pajama bottoms (only) when the house became filled with little invaders coming in and out during the night.  They would creep into bed seeking protection from the monsters hiding under their own bed but walk down a darken hallway to slip into mine, go figure.  Time passes and I guess so do we, now you can find me almost on any given night sleeping in a worn pair of gym shorts and a pull over T-shirt. I no longer have to worry about little invaders and creepy nightly monsters but have not returned to my bare-assed sleeping habit.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
After your nightly rituals are done and you've said your nightly prayer how does the sand man find you waiting?

Naked as the day I was born.

Naked, only on colder days I slip on a T-shirt.

I often start with flannel lovelies but through the night I slowly discard them, a nocturnal striptease.
Curiously in summer I feel too exposed and tend to sleep with some boxers.
For whimsy we have old victorian night shirts - only the nightcaps and corniculate moustaches are missing.

Let's see two naked's and some fannel's that disappear during the night, "Someone" is a lucky man. Actually I think the night shirts on a man is actually sexy. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave the comments guys.

I like sleeping in flannel night shirts or boxers and a t-shirt. If I have a sleep over with a special guy (which is pretty rare) I'll always sleep naked. Love that skin-to-skin contact!

In the winter it gets pretty frigid here and if I have the thermostat turned down (to save heating costs), I'll bundle up: T-shirt, hoodie, track pants and wooly socks.
