Scary Slumber Party Pranks
Get it right: how to pull off an adult sleepover
As a young girl, the idea of a sleepover with friends was pant-wettingly exciting, to the point where at least one sleeping bag would need a good boil wash afterwards. With my imagination fuelled by Enid Blyton books set in boarding schools midnight feasts were, of course, mandatory , everything about the American concept of a slumber party — from the sharing of secrets and ghost stories to the face masks — appealed. But now, as an adult, I was less keen on the idea. Yet it seems that, Stateside , actual adults are now having sleepovers.
Classic Pajama Pranks
Kids attending pajama parties often enjoy playing slumber party pranks on one another as the night wears on. From funny to scary, pranks are often on the list of things to do when you plan an overnight bash. The best pranks to play in your pajamas are often the ones that have been around for a long time. In fact, your parents may have participated in pranks that are still popular today.
We have let adulthood rob us of so many privileges. Twenty-something years ago, it was totally acceptable for me to run around the backyard without any pants on, and although my memories of it are vague, they are nonetheless so, so sweet. Now my legs are imprisoned by pants, I'm expected to magically know how to file taxes, and people get super judgey when I drink from an apple juice box. Who let adulthood hold such dominion over us?! Why aren't more people placing priority on figuring out how to retain the best parts of our childhood and integrating them into a well-lived adult life? It seems like something that should matter a great deal to all of us. Because growing up is great, but there's absolutely nothing to be gained from leaving behind literally every part of being kids. Some of it was too correct to let fall away forever. I have to draw the line somewhere, and so I am drawing it at sleepovers.
