Slumber parties have been the best source of entertainment since I was old enough to tell a secret! What could be more fun than, sneaking out after dark, rolling yards, staying up til dawn, and boy’s? I know I am leaving out the part when girls sometimes get their feelings hurt, the never ending prank calling, and parents shrieking GO TO SLEEP! It must have been worth it, because I am still doing it!
I don’t know why I am compelled to invite my nocturnal friends to share an evening of mind-blowing gossip, and telling our inconceivable dark secrets! Why does this thrill me like a sixteen year old, talking to her crush, in the middle of the night? (You know!)
I bet it was perplexing to my children, the thousands of times, I farmed them out, like pet’s, in order to make it to a lake, cabin, or beach, by happy hour! Slumber parties, like wine, get better with age…I know, because my friends have bought me a zillion cocktail napkins that say so! These nights have a brutal prerequisite…An enormous amount of exaggerating, laughing, sobbing, and celebrating divorces! It is inevitable that someone will bellow “It’s ONLY midnight”! THANK GOD, we have ample time for….more eating, dancing, singing and cheerleading…”OH CRAP…are we out of chardonnay and party favor’s”?
I’m not saying keeping up and staying up isn’t hard work. I’m just saying…keeping up with the pace is well worth it! You gotta keep up, or…
YOU are not invited!
GOOOO LHS DREADNAUGHTS!
GO TO SLEEP!
