On Friday I went to a party at Sian's house. The invite stated that it was a 'ladies night' party. That could mean anything but I am game for a laugh so I agreed to go. I even agreed to let the sat nav lady direct me. We don't have the best history and I don't entirely like the tone of her voice!
Ben got back from work and I got ready to go out. I hadn't been feeling all that great during the week and I had what I thought was the beginnings of impetigo. (This has subsequently been treated by an over the counter remedy and has almost gone completely. I think I may have been lucky and caught it early when it was still just a cold sore)
previous posts) I also had the added disadvantage that it was dark and that didn't help me at all. I also quickly realise that snotty sat nav lady is being very quite. She isn't speaking to me. I only hear a ding every so often telling me that I am to turn at that precise moment! So I have to look at the map and then try to read the street signs so I know when to turn. Thankfully I arrive in one piece and not stressed at all. I have taken a bottle of wine with me but I won't be drinking. If I drive I don't even have a mouthful of alcohol. It is just not worth the risk.
Ann Summers. This party was an American equivalent, it was a Pure Romance party. Sue was the lady doing the party and she was setting up whilst all the guests arrived. Some of the women there I had met before, some I definitely hadn't met and some I was not sure if I had met. I am not good with remembering names and faces so if I meet you again and seem a bit clueless then I apologize in advance.
When it was time to begin we all sat down and Sue handed us all a brochure, a business card, a bit of paper towel and order form. She then came round the room again with two small cases. One had pens in it and the other had small penis pen toppers. (We would be using the pen toppers later!) The first thing that is done to break the ice, not that it needed breaking, was an alphabet game. Sue held up a card with a letter of the alphabet on it and we all had to shout out things that began with that letter. Things that were in theme with the party. The person who got the most won a prize. Melissa won that and I think she got a lipstick in the shape of a penis. Sue then started going through the brochure and showing us certain products and what were the uses/benefits for each one. If there was a lotion that was smelly then we put it on our right arm, if we were to taste it we were to put it on our left arm. At one point there was one product that we dipped our penis toppers in and put on our lips! (We had the paper towels to wipe off our arms.)
The wine was flowing freely and the women were laughing hysterically at points. Once the demonstrations were over we could go into the dining room to place our orders privately if we wanted and take it away at the same time. (I didn't order anything)
I had a great time and it was a brilliant laugh. I met new people and had a very entertaining evening. If you, my lovely readers, are in the US and would like to place an order through Sue then her website can be found here.
