Sleepover by niels827 Sleepover by niels827
I had my share of sleepovers as a kid, both attending and hosting. But back in the '90s, we were relegated to 8 or 16-bit video games, board games, jokes, stories, books, and physical games like sardines (similar to hide and seek, but 10 times more fun).

Sardines is a derivative of hide-and-seek, where only one person hides and the others must find him/her. When somebody finds the hiding person, they stay and hide with them. The more people find that person, the more cramped the hiding space becomes (like sardines in a tin, hence the name). The first person to find the hiding group gets to hide next. The last person to find them is the loser.

Today, kids are so attached to their mobile devices, smartphones, and tablets, I don't think they even know how to have proper fun anymore. Nevertheless, children's slumber parties are often a highlight of their childhood, as they were for mine. But as I've gotten older, I've learned the hard way that as time passes you by, the only sleepovers you have are the result of something accidental like passing out after being too drunk to drive, being kicked out of the house, or meeting a girl in a bar. The latter is, of course, the best kind.

Ah, yes. My favorite part of the game, the abortion minigame. I frankly don't understand why people find it hard, it's pretty easy for me. Well, we all have different mindsets.

I've played "truth or dare." Let's just say you should probably consider yourself lucky.

Because frankly, I find that clicking on someone's art, that took them quite a while to make, and saying nothing more than what they should do "next time" is quite...let me be honest...fucking rude. You also have a habit of recaptioning my art and modifying dialogue, therefore completely obliterating their original intended purpose and/or message behind it. I find it to be disrespectful. Whether or not that's your intention is a question only you can answer, but the outcome doesn't change my opinion.

If requests, trades, and commissions are not open, and you want to see something made, because my artwork is somehow not up to par with your standards, then ask someone else, or do it yourself.

No offense.

I remember the sardines game!
We would turn off the lights of the house (only leaving a few on here and there so we could see more or less where we were) and then we'd just wonder off searching for the person. Was pretty funny when you were hiding and hearing the other kids complaining and hearing them hit furniture (maybe I'm just mean lol). Gosh I miss those times.

It's a very nice portrait of what I think nowadays kids do on sleepovers. Makes me wish that technology wasn't that much part of our life.

That's true nowadays. Only I never been in a slumber party but have stayed at my grandma house to play my cousins when we were little though it's sad that one of them he had to movr to Chicago which I have no idea why, so things weren't the same again we we're pretty close too :/

I've had lots of slumber parties and my recent one was me passing out drunk with a bunch of friends and one of my friend's boyfriend who got high at the time. It was very tame alright :P.
