Survey time: raise your hand if you’ve NEVER HAD A ONE-NIGHT STAND.
Thought so – there aren’t a lot of you out there who’ve never gone that route at some point in your previous life. Yes, even those single-night hookups with your best friend’s roommate’s cousin who you see every year as they drive across the country on vacation and needed a place to crash, counts.
One of life’s greatest gift-giving spectacles is the parade of men in stores like Victoria’s Secret, wandering around and trying to figure out what type of underwear or lingerie they should buy for their significant other.
As many women say, no matter how many times their man will insist that the gift of lingerie is for her – it’s still a gift for him.
It’s a well-worn comedic observation: women just take forever in the bathroom, getting ready.
Maybe that explains why we always see women driving down the highway in morning commuter traffic, still putting on their makeup with their hair in rollers, if only to save themselves an extra 10-15 minutes of sleep.
Why do their beauty regime at home in front of a mirror when you can do the same thing driving at 75 MPH while weaving in and out of traffic?
The premise is simple: throw a ball into a cup, make your opponent drink. Web Watch has even been to the WORLD SERIES OF BEER PONG out in Las Vegas, and we’ll be the first to tell you that THAT event is a party and a half, even if the entry fee (including room, which cuts down on driving liability issues) starts at $500 per person.
Web Watch, as we’ve declared previously, loves playing board games with friends.
There’s something about sitting around a table and taking part in a group activity – laughing, drinking – that you just can’t get from the anonymous (and cheat-filled) ways of playing knock-off word games with friends via cellphone.
Is SCRABBLE the best game choice for game night? Sometimes yes, sometimes not. It partly depends on how many people are playing, and whether they enjoy playing word games with you. If you’re the kind of person who TiVos the NATIONAL SPELLING BEE, then chances are you’re not the type of person that others will want to engage in a casual Scrabble game with.
If you’re like Web Watch, then you too have likely received the parental email thread – typically forwarded from friend after friend, Facebook after Facebook post – that encourages everyone to enter an I.C.E. entry on your cellphone.
You know, IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.
That ICE entry would contain the name, phone number, and other immediately important information about the person/people that emergency responders should contact for you when an emergency or crisis occurs. Web Watch even knows someone who has a complete ICE binder sitting smack on top of their refrigerator, with the names, addresses, and phone numbers of their entire family tree. This makes sense, of course – as everyone knows that the kitchen is the 2nd most dangerous place in the house… after the bathroom.
And who would want to keep an ICE binder in the bathroom?
