Those Crazy Kids

I called my brother this morning to wish him a happy birthday. I interrogated asked him what his plans were for the day (this is the one day of the year I can be so nosy). He said he was going to partake in some pre-St, Patty's day festivities and also join in a game of Ass or Face. What? He gave me a quick overview of the game and I soon realized that only being a year and a half older than him, I am much too old for this sort of activity.

So how do you play Ass or Face? There needs to be even numbers of partially clothed guys and girls, a blindfold and some dice. Roll of one die determines which sex the contestant must kiss, and the roll of the second die determines which body part must be kissed while blindfolded. Then the contestant must decide which body part he or she just kissed. Sounds like some sort of sexual experimentation/drinking game to me.

When I turned 27 I already had 2 children and no time to play silly college drinking games. Trust me the only butts I come in contact with are cute little kid butts running around after a bath. Sometimes I wish my life were as simple as his. He has no children, no pets, no person of real significance in his life (that I know of at least), he doesn't even own a car or a cell phone. He comes and goes as he pleases, eats when he wants, sleeps when he wants. A simple life of hard boiled eggs, coffee and a short walk to work from his little compartment. A bachelor to the core complete with duct tape, but that's how he likes it.

Happy B-day bro and for goodness sake wash your hands!

Okay, that last line? Laughed out loud. HA HA HA HA! You're funny.

I've never heard of that game, but if I were 20 yrs younger, I'd definitly play that. Mostly because 20 years ago, I, like your brother was footloose and fancy free. Gotta love drinking games! Ahhhhh. Tis but a mere memory. lol.

As I was reading this post, I thought to myself. Holy cow! How young is Aliceson?! I did some wild things in my day, but I think I was done by the time I was 23. But then, I did start when I was 15...

No car?? No cell phone??? I think I could do with out the cell, but the car? Ahhhh, sounds like a tough life to me. :0) Happy Birthday to him. It's my sis in law's b-day today, as well.

Wow...now I really feel old! I could be your mom...if I had gotten pregnant when I was 16. But then I would have missed all the fun I had.

Fiona said...

ha! You are never too old to play ass or face but somehow it doesn't sound appealing to me! LOL I have brother like this too!

I guess I'd take a really close look at all the asses and face before deciding whether I wanted to be in the game. E.coli comes to mind, when I think of such things. My midlife crisis doesn't stretch beyond my wish to get a tattoo. :)

Oh I don't miss the single and getting drunk days - the hangover, the lack of food in my fridge, the studio apt. UGH.

I'm with freckles, I would definately play this game (or not) dependent upon the caliber of fellow party guests and the amount of booze in my bloodstream. As Fiona said, "You are never too old to play ass or face." Just wait until it catches on just like the recent trends of fisting and teabagging.

Hahaha, I'm laughing and sharing this.

Ass or face... I love it.

Like many who commented, I don't miss the single days.

I'd be careful next time you see your bro and if he tries to give you a kiss... you have no idea where that mouth has been :).

PS: Thanks for the Award; sorry it took me a while to get caught up on your blog posts after my hiatus.
