"So much that I wanna do when I dream I'm alone with you" --ABBA


True confession: I have never played Spin the Bottle. No really. If I had, I'd totally tell you. I've played Truth or Dare, which, let's face it, is a stupid thing to do. Let me get this straight: I can either tell you something I had no intention of ever telling you or do something I had no intention of ever doing? Sign me up! What could possibly go wrong with this plan?

But, alas, I was never invited to play Spin the Bottle. I've never been in a room with people playing Spin the Bottle. I've heard of people playing Spin the Bottle but I have no first hand knowledge. I have a hard time imagining ever being that indiscriminate about whom I smooch on. Suppose you do get the dog. With it's ALPO breath and floppy tongue and muddy paws* and sheddy fur and over-enthusiastic tail. The slightest encouragement and the next thing you know, this happens (Warning: strangely NSFW):



Um, no.

Do people still play Spin the Bottle? Have you ever played Spin the Bottle? And, if so, was it *nudge*nudge*wink*wink* fun?



* Okay, that's pretty hot.

I have heard of AND played spin-the-bottle, but I only played with humans.

I know, call me conservative for not wanting to mix species, but I'm okay with that.

Wow, day 2. I may join in.

I was involved in a game of Spin the Bottle, but the women usually got a waiver if the bottle pointed at me. Kissing me was considered too cruel.

Bowie Mike said...

OMG, that video is hilarious! Never did play STB either.

Gilahi said...

Yeah, kissing someone you don't want to kiss is bad enough. The other person making it very obvious that they'd rather have a root canal than to kiss YOU is even worse.

Wv: drambo - A small sip of scotch that will kick your ass.

Uptown Girl said...

I thought everyone played STB... It was a standard middle/high school game for my crowd. But nothing ever got real steamy.

Have you heard of the game "7 minutes in Heaven"? more teenage drama.

Spin the Bottle was THE game at parties when I was in 6th or 7th grade. We thought we were quite sophisticated to participate in such play.

By 8th grade we were slow dancing at parties but by High School I was in the Marching Band so we mostly just marched at parties. I think this is why I am still socially inept yet have a great appreciation for a good drum line.

Hannah said...

I've played spin the bottle before. Last time was years ago at a party where I smooched a cute girl sitting across from me. It was verrry nice. But I think my days of playing that game are over.

That video is hilarious but very disturbing. I guess the Mother-in-Law took "doggie style" a bit too literally!

Mishi said...

I've played it, during middle school. It was...interesting. Definitely NOT steamy though.

Liebchen said...

We never did spin the bottle, but we played a lot of truth and dare. Which sometimes just turned into truth - as in, tell the whole group your deepest darkest secrets and pray they don't tell anyone else.

Kate said...

I never played any kissing games -- no Spin the Bottle, no Seven Minutes in Heaven, nothing. I didn't even kiss a boy until my junior prom. I was a late bloomer, but I think I made up for lost time in college. ;)

Dmbosstone said...

I've played it once and I was drunk. So it helped.

Mike said...

Most of the spinning I've done was after the bottle.

Alice said...

the first time i played was in college, actually. i was at a halloween party my sophmore year, and the Super Hot Guy Who Made Milkshakes at the lodge was there, so i played hoping i'd get to make out with him. totally worked!

f.B said...

No bottle has ever been spun in my presence. I tried to convince myself that ketchup bottles were for burgers and not romance. But I never really believed that.

bettyl said...

Can't say that I ever have played! Don't think we missed much, though.

LiLu said...

As far as I'm concerned, Spin the Bottle only existed in angsty teenage books. If I want to smooch someone, I don't need a room full of people critiquing my form...

Angela said...

I've played Spin the Bottle once, but never Seven Minutes in Heaven.

Jason said...

I love how in the video NONE of the family members are making a move to pull the dog off her.

Never played "Spin the Bottle." Played "Pass the Straw" once in Junior High--is that a common game?

GirlGriot said...

Never played spin the bottle. Played post office a few times at summer camp, though. And plenty o' truth or dare. Preferred the kissing to the revealing of deep dark secrets!

Maya said...

Yes I've played several times. For the rest of the story I plead the fifth because it's NSFW.

Reya Mellicker said...

I have played spin the bottle - throughout sixth grade this was one of our favorite games. And yeah sometimes the bottle points to the dog which means you close your eyes tight, pucker up and hold your lips FIRMLY together. Afterwards you wipe your lips (surreptitiously or not so much depending on how rude you feel like being.)

By 7th grade we were more into making out at parties held in the basements of neighbors and friends. Slow dancing while making out.

Sweet memories. Thanks.

Little Ms Blogger: Conservative! And, please do.

Ibid: Yummy tells a different story.

Bowie Mike: I thought so, too.

Gilahi: Does sound awkward.

Uptown Girl: I've heard of it but, again, haven't played. Late bloomer, I guess.

Herb of DC: Marching parties. The mind? She boggles.

Hannah: Katy Perry agrees with you.

Mishi: Thanks for weighing in.

Liebchen: Exactly.

Kate: I can relate to the late bloomer thingy.

Dmbosstone: Alcohol helps. Got it.

Mke: Clever!

Alice: Woot!

f.B: Burgers and romance are not mutually exclusive. I never envisioned STB being romantic. But, hey, sounds like it was for Alice.

bettyl: Probably not.

LiLu: You have form? Please send guidance.

Angela: Thanks for weighing in.

Jason: What the heck is Pass the Straw? Gonna have to Google...

GirlGriot: Less intimate?

Maya: But those are the best stories!

Reya Mellicker: Thanks for sharing!

Maya said...

Maybe I'll tell you in person someday. They are just too racy for the blogosphere!

What a friendly dog! HaHaHa!!!
In my neighborhood Spin the Bottle was for wimps. We felt that Strip Poker was far more sophisticated and exciting.
