The Slumber Party


On Friday night, my neighbor hosted a girls only slumber party at her home. Usually, I avoid situations where I am expected to hold my own in conversation, but there was a strong likelihood that one or more of the other party guests (four slightly inebriated women whose median age was 49) would spill the beans on something of interest, so I went.

The first half of the evening was spent eating salad and discussing how we all would rather be eating dessert. The second half of the night was spent eating dessert and praising ourselves for eating salad first. As the conversation drifted away from ourselves and onto our children, I was struck by the fact that the stories these women told about their college-aged children (bad manners, stolen property, urinating in places where they shouldn't) sounded eerily similar to the stories I tell about my five-year-olds and other people tell about their dogs.

Even after playing Truth or Dare and batting around the idea of 'TP'ing a neighbor's house just for fun, none of use could shake the feeling that there was something missing from our slumber party. A few minutes later, the front door swung open and a streaker--wearing only a pair of underpants--ran through the house.

I love my husband.

Streakers Rule! I fear sleepovers with other women. I always get flashbacks to middle school sleepovers where girls put my underwear in the freezer, and we put one girl's fingers in a warm bowl of water while she was sleeping in order to get her to pee. I think it only works on boys though. Take care.

Interesting that at the end of your post about streakers is "the other posts you might like" and one of them has a picture of Hannah Montana....hmmmmm.

But, I'll admit here and now - I am 29 and love The Climb.

Fun times!!!

Haha! I hosted Bunko a while back and had a fully nude male streaker. Granted he was 3 years old and had escaped from his bath while Daddy was in charge, but hey, it got the party going!!

Wow he should get most entertaining husband ever award :) You're brave, I still avoid that kind of event like it's the plague. Women are so not nice sometimes.

LOL - love the comparison of college-kids to 5 year olds to dogs!

Lolly said...

I've never been to an adult slumber party before. That sounds like fun!

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

I am laughing.

You are so brave.

He is so insane.

Sarah said...

If my husband did that, my post about it wouldn't be a humorous one! You both have a good sense of humor - good thing!

Wow - you all actually bothered to eat salad?! The closest thing to healthy my girlfriends and I ever eat at our gatherings is spinach & artichoke dip.

Sheans said...

I need to move to your neighborhood. It sounds so much better than mine.

Marissa said...

Bwahahahaha!

Hey, did he at least make out with a few singles (one dollar bills, not women:)?

Casey M. said...

HAA! That is awesome.

Rebecca is Thrilled by the Thought said...

Lol. What a sweetheart to make your slumber party so complete.

The Slaughter 5 said...

HILARIOUS!!! So did you ask him to streak or did he come up with that on his own?

I have to say when I read the title of this post, I was curious... The big controversy in our ward this week is that a lady is hosting a slumber party and inviting all the relief society sisters. I wondered if it was the same kind of slumber party. You can see what kind of slumber parties happen around here at: www.slumberparties.com. And FYI, I am not going...I prefer to keep the kinkiness at home, rather than in someone's living room with a bunch of ladies ordering toys & such!

Nora Ray said...

Wait a minute... was the streaker your husband or does your husband just look really good compared to the streaker?

Karen said...

Seriously?

Summer Jackson said...

HILARIOUS!

Caitlin said...

*AHEM* they were PAPER underpants

that detail makes it even funnier

Dawn said...

Wow.

I'm thinking I might just accept the next slumber party invite I get after reading your post.

We had a streaker at a football game a couple of seasons past. Started in one end zone, made it all the way to the other - through the stunned players - and out the gates at the far end. All with the two off-duty police officers in hot persuit. Never did catch or ID him (he had on a mask) but the track coach is still looking for him. Ha!
