Top 500 Feelings - #299 Parents Saying Yes To A Sleepover
Now, I can honestly say I still have about 3-4 sleepovers a week, but most of them are due to the fact that I can't operate a vehicle well enough to get me from point A to point B. So for this feeling you got to take a stroll down memory lane and remember the days when you used to have to call your parents before 10 O'Clock to give them an update on the night and how it's ending. Try and remember the days when sleepovers weren't impulsive decisions. The days when you used to set up a Friday night sleepover on a Monday. Everyone had their go-to parent who was usually more lenient than the other and thus twice as likely to say "Yes" to a sleepover. They would always be your first option but half the time would just redirect you to the other parent because they didn't want to make the final decision, or because they just didn't care enough. Sometimes you would even get redirected back to the original parent you asked, which usually meant that the probability of the sleepover was high. Your friends would only be able to hear one side of the conversation on the phone too. They'd hear your plea for a sleepover, providing a list of reasons as to why you won't be tired, what time you're "planning" on going to bed, the word please at least five times, and a big "thank you" when you finally receive confirmation. It was a great feeling when you knew you'd get to extend the night with your bro's and have a surplus of time to talk chicks. You'd finally have enough time to beat Golden Eye and make as many prank phone calls as your heart desired. Sleepovers were better than sex, so the confirmation to have one is undoubtedly a top 500 feeling.
