Smoking Jackets for Swingin' Grade Schoolers!
January 11, 2013 11:16 AM Subscribe
Youngest Nephew (age 8) has declared that for his birthday party next week, he only wants his favorite adults to attend. We will be listening to his favorite vinyl records (he is mainly into Sinatra's Capitol years these days) and dining on omelets that he will cook for us, featuring the fancy salt and umami paste I bought his mom for Christmas. Apparently, he enjoys cooking while chomping on a bubble pipe and wearing a bathrobe that he calls his smoking jacket. This is, of course, outrageous: he must have a real
smoking jacket, and his doting aunt must be the one who presents it to him. Help me help him to be Too Marvelous for Words.

The swingin' shindig in question is next Sunday evening, so either I need to be able to order something online to arrive by Saturday, or to find a bricks-and-mortal store in L.A. where I can buy it in the next week. Googling "kids smoking jacket" just brings up adult-sized versions.
