It showed all the signs of flopping believe me – about 50 texts were sent from me to the people attending (all 6 of them which then became 4) and all of this over the course of 24 hours. And because dates were confused, we ended up as 4. Oh well. Now as much as I like to dance and go clubbing, we decided to go bowling and dinner – a chilled one! I use the term dinner loosely because we ended up in Nando’s but dessert was at the lovely Waffle House in Bayswater! Mmmmm! As you can see, dessert was good :).
Whilst we were out – it hit me. I know why girly nights flop – it’s because we’re lazy. There is so much effort firstly to organise it, secondly the physical preparation, and thirdly the after event matters.
I’ve briefly covered the first here.
The second – we have to look good. Even if we’re only seeing the girls, there is a need to dress to impress. We’re constantly being judged and more so by our female counterparts. This means that we need to make sure we co-ordinate our clothes, make up, shoes and endeavour that our hair looks good! And that requires a whole load of effort on our parts especially if it’s only for girls!
Thirdly, we worry about getting home (a lot!). For the non drinkers, it’s not so much as we usually drive or are in a state where we can string together a few sentences but for the alcoholics, it’s a lot harder and safety is a BIG thing! So more often than not, we flop!
But despite all this, we do rock (sometimes!) :). We get what other girls think when they we feel threatened by that gorgeous girl that all the blokes pine after, we are more often than not always on hand to deal with break ups (although only those of our close friends), we are always clean and smell fresh (well more often than not), and we totally understand the pain and torture of high heels despite repeating “no pain, no gain” as our mantra!
Obviously there are more but some things are better left unspoken no?
Also – you know you’ve made it in the SL blogosphere when you make it onto someone else’s blogroll so thank you Dili! 🙂
