Back in the day when a gentleman would go for a haircut he would be asked "Something for the weekend sir?" Now if you don't know what that means, he was asking if the "gentleman" wanted condoms, just in case (although how much of a gentleman that made him, I'm not sure - a little presumptuous actually). Things have certainly changed and you can now buy condoms, without embarrassment, in just about any store you go in. The stigma of being "ready" has certainly gone, in fact, it's now encouraged. Which brings me around to my topic today... being ready for anything.
A couple of weekends ago, we had some friends over for drinks and snacks. Eventually, the conversation lulled, the drinks kicked in and the sun beat down, causing someone to ask if we should jump in the spa. Well, hello! of course - there were no bikinis or trunks, but that's never stopped us before and it didn't stop us this time.
Four naked bodies in one spa makes for a fun day. A few more drinks get the imaginations going wild and suddenly we're thinking how fun it would be to have a slip-n-slide ..... hmmmm.... imagination overload. What can be done about this? Well, lets get innovative and find what we need.
Home Made Slip-N-Slide:
- Husky Painter's Plastic
- Coconut Oil
- Fun (sexy) People
Lay out the plastic on the ground - cut to size (we used a square about 10x10) - cover yourself in coconut oil - get frisky.
I think you can use your own imagination about what happened after that. Just let me say, it was more Twister than Slip-n-Slide. (*grin*) But wow... this is something you really, really need to try.
But a word of warning - use thicker painters plastic. We used the only thing we had and it was way too thin and kept ripping at the most inopportune moments. For best results, it would probably be better to use a tarp or something similar. The coconut oil is much slicker than water, and its good for your skin! (a win-win situation)
And the moral of this story? Next time you're in Lowes or Home Depot with a boring household decorating project, think to yourself "Something for the Weekend?" It's amazing what you can find to spice up your life in the most mundane places.
Have you ever used a household item for something other than what it was intended? What's the wildest thing you've done with a kitchen utensil?
Why not let your imagination run wild this weekend....
