Today I’m wearing flannel pants, okay, flannel pajama pants, and I’m in front of students teaching unit pricing. And they got it. They are confident consumers, prepared to make deliberate choices when it comes to spending money simply because …they know how.

Why the pajama pants? It’s Holiday Spirit week and it was the choice of Student Council for the Monday (and Friday, I might add) before winter break. I wonder if I would have had a lower unit cost if I had only known to buy two flannel pajama pants.
