Spin the Bottle

Have I told you the one about the kids that played spin the bottle with the babysitter? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Picture it....early 1970s.... Boise, Idaho.... two family's worth of children left with the babysitter for the evening. Maybe four or six of us, I can't quite remember....that was the least of my worries. We had used this particular female babysitter numerous times. A very nice gal, she was. Probably no older than 14 or 16. A pretty young lady, the daughter of some of my parent's friends. They lived nearby.

So, somehow we ended upstairs in her bedroom. All of us kids. And a pop bottle (I don't think they make those in this day and age). And there was this little game where we would all sit in a circle and the bottle would be spun around in the middle of the circle. And whoever it pointed at when it stopped spinning had to remove an article of clothing. To say the least, I was giddy with excitement over the whole debacle. And I couldn't wait for it to land on me.

The only difference between that silly little game and today is that I don't rely on the pop bottle excuse any longer.

*falls down laughing* are you telling me you were more excited about removing your own clothing, than you were about getting to see other people remove theirs? Hahaha!

Strip spin the bottle? Lordy. We only did it with kissing. You kiss the person the bottle landed on. I should have been raised in Idaho.

oh goodness.....and remember the one where, if it landed on you, you had to go "in the closet" and kiss whoever spun it????? jeesh, think of all the DNA that was swapped.....

and remember the pop bottle dispensers that looked like small chest refrigerators? you put the money in the top and could watch the pop roll out sideways into the metal catch! ahhhhh memories.
