The 7 unexpected things grown-ups do at sleepovers

I have had more sleep-overs this year than I may have had the entirety of my time in high school.

My dear friend Sima and I have some very good habits. Our riveting sleepovers include:

  1. Creative pillow distribution (this is the first priority for a good sleepover).
  2. Reading.
  3. Setting of alarms (sleepovers are a way to bond when weekends and work schedules aren't aligning well.
  4. Careful coordination of pajamas based on current inventory and how they complement the o other person's pajamas.
  5. Watching old VHS tapes of horribly wonderful movies such as Undercover Blues and Spaceballs.
  6. Eating strawberries and drinking cheap champagne.
  7. Falling asleep less than half an hour into a VHS of The Wizard of Oz.
  8. Eating as much candy as we damn well please and not brushing our teeth...until we realize how much money we have to spend on cavities where we get up promptly to do the right thing.
  9. Making whole wheat pancakes in the morning.
