Lizzie has been to another 16th birthday party. This one was dressup. The theme was Pimps and Ho's. That surprised me a bit. Mind you it didn't surprise me as much as the nurses outfit Lizzie showed me and told me she was going to wear. So I ummed and ahhed and had my usual rant and then let her go beause as the song says, the times they are a changing.
We had a brief conversation.
Is his mother going to be there?
Is his father going to be there?
Well what is he some kind of pervert or something?
Because thats what I'd be thinking. Say Lizzie went up to her father and said – hey dad, how about I have a party and all my 15 year old friends come around and we dress up in nurses uniforms and french maid outfits and as school girls and pitt crew girls and we all dance and have a good time. And say he said – wow, that'd be a great idea Lizzie, I'd be saying to him that he was a bloody old pervert.
At least there was no alcohol allowed. No drink at all actually. Not a can of coke or a glass of water to be found. Nor a party pie or a bowl of corn chips on offer. Lizzie said it was like a 40 hour famine party. Except it didn't go for 40 hours of course, because the police came around and shut it down.
This was because the usual older gatecrashers turned up, sat out the front drinking for a while before they started sneaking into the backyard and giving the younger kids alcohol. Then, as Lizzie puts it, the mother freaked out and told everyone they'd have to leave and called the cops. So she goes up to lizzie and says 'If I were you sweetheart I'd get out of here now because the police will be here in 15 minutes". Well thanks all the same lady, but get out where to? She didn't say "would you like to ring your mother to come and pick you up?'. So now she's freaked all the young kids out and they all leave to roam around the streets and walk home. (Lizzie didn't, a friends mother bought her home.) I'm dumbfounded by people sometimes.
Whatever happened to a movie night and a sleepover?
