First up: I'm not a one night stand kind of girl. I'm not getting into bed with someone right after I meet them.
I prefer to spend two nights with them, and introduce myself AFTER the first night.
Kind of. I'm married, remember? To this cutie:
But I have a funny story and it needed an intro. Ah, the old bait and switch. Ahem, now that I have your attention, let me set the scene.
It's 12:45 at night, and I'm a little drunk. Nothing crazy, but some wine and a dehydrating plane ride can give you that light-headed feeling. I'm pretty nervous to be doing this, something I've never done before, but I put the hotel key into the room's door and try to imagine what will be on the other side.
The room is pitch black, and I can't even tell if anyone's inside. I turn the bathroom light on and slip into something more comfortable (butterfly pajamas and a tank top, for you fashion forward ladies) before tiptoeing to the beds. One bed was full already, a couple passed out in the dark. The other bed had just one denizen, the blanket turned down inviting me in. I sprawl out on my side of the bed...
Alright, alright. Read Fifty Shades of Grey if you want to head in THAT direction, but if you want the truth-
The above really happened. My flight got in really late to Seattle last Wednesday night, and I shared a room with three other women who I had never met before. In one bed: Stephanie and Lauren. In my bed: Jocelyn. I crawled in next to her in the dark, felt awkward and then realized I had no choice but to go to bed and hope she didn't wake up and scream something about an intruder. The next morning around 7, after the alarms went off, I rolled over and introduced myself to her. Gotta say, that was a first!
Luckily, she is one of those exuberant outgoing personalities that makes you feel right at home, so that eliminated the awkwardness straight away!
So- since none of you are going to tell me about your random one-night stands in a comment box, tell me instead if you read Fifty Shades of Grey and what you thought about it.
I haven't read it, but the excerpts I have read look terrible. Not as in, terrible subject matter, but as in terrible writing. It's one of those books I'll probably read eventually just to know what everyone is talking about.
