Slumber Party Faux Pas

The 100wcgu prompt this week is I blamed it on the dog

It was August 8, 1970-something. My mom had a hot date and I had a slumber party.

After it got dark me and my friends did all of the usual dumb stuff that teen-agers did in my neighborhood.

We soaped windows, stole gas caps from parked cars, TP’d a couple of houses and ordered pizzas to be delivered to my neighbors.

Everything was going along fine until my mom came home and saw what we’d done to the neighborhood.

The missing soap, toilet paper and collection of gas caps on the kitchen table gave us away.

I blamed it on the dog…

forgetting we had a cat.

Squeezably Soft!

    Cute. Women don’t fart; it’s always the dog.
    It’s a challenge to write shorts. I see the value. My writing has tightened up.

    LOL. Rule number 1 – make sure your scapegoat is feasible!

    I liked the ending. :)


  5. Ah, sleepovers. Speaking of dogs and cats, I drew a cat on a blackboard my friend had instead of being naughty and having fun like the rest of the girls. B-o-r-i-n-g.


  6. Reminds me, too, and I’m cringing. When we were caught, we spend the entire next day cleaning up, visiting with/making plans to make amends with all the neighbors. Not the great finale we’d planned…

    No, I think you blamed in on the rabbit we were chasing……

    Reminds me of the things as a kid we used to do when we had sleepovers. I never blamed it on the dog though I blamed it on my brother. Great post it made me feel young again.


Go ahead. I don't bite very hard.
