To the moon, Alice!

Roo-girl's friend A (of the shopping expedition fame) celebrated her bat mitzvah over the past weekend. We spent a LOT of time with A's family -- services and parties and brunch.

Blah blah woof woof.

Had a blast of course.

But also had a moment of "Oh dear LORD!"

Follow closely.

The adults were seated at the tables, getting their main course. The kids had already eaten.

The girls were on the dance floor. So were the boys.

There was lots of spinning around and dancing and sliding across the floor. Not a lot of actual touching between the genders, which was oh-so-fine with me.

All normal dance-floor behavior for 13-year-olds.

In the midst of all the spinning, one of the girls grabbed another girl around the waist and spun her 'round and 'round and 'round.

Please note, said spun girl was wearing a very short dress -- as today's 13-year-old girls do.

Suddenly, said short dress rose up, up, up, above her waist.

Revealing to a roomful of adults and a few eagle-eyed teens ... her bare buns.

Apparently, she noticed a bit of a draft because she tugged at her hemline rather quickly and made her friend set her down.

But not before the full moon set over the dance floor.

There was a lot of horrified staring but not a lot of comment at that moment. I think people were, frankly, stunned into silence.

The moment passed, and we went back to our chicken dinner.

Later, I couldn't resist asking the Roo-girl about this incident.

Evil Mother: So ... um ... let me ask you a question. Do you think she was wearing NOTHING or butt floss?

The Roo-girl: Was it a kid?

Evil Mother: *actually amazed that she hadn't seen or heard anything about this prior to this moment* It was a kid.

TRG: Then it was definitely butt floss. Kids my age don't go commando.

Learn something new every day ...

Oh that is just priceless! I will have you know though Roo Girl chics my age don't necessarily go Commando either!

Tink doesn't do commando either. The last time I tried, I walked like a duck all day long. A duck with dress pants creeping up it's bum. ;)

HRH said...

You (via she) are a wealth of information unknown to me!

LceeL said...

So the question that just naturally comes to mind then is ... At what age DO they go commando? Because then I'm going to start checking ID's.

nikki said...

I learn something new every time I read your posts......

wright said...

I'm with LceeL. When do they start going commando?!?!?!

Janet said...

snort, and double snort.
I don't do commando, although my underwear will sometimes masquerade as butt floss. meh.

The Laundress said...

I so want to live with you.

Why doesn't stuff like this happen when I go to parties?

I should keep my trap shut of course, it will be MY daughter mooning the crown when her time comes...(If she's anything like her mother.)

Catwoman said...

Well that would make the bat mitzvah memorable...

I'm debating in my head if commando or butt floss is worse for a 13-year old girl, and can't seem to decide...

Marmarbug said...

Oh.my.god. ALREADY!!! I think I was like 17 when I got my first butt floss.

Robinella said...

No commando here either. Not even when I was cute.

Sandy C. said...

Oh my! I had no idea it was something they graduated to with age :(

I..Skerrrred.

I had a serious shudder of revulsion. Thanks. What parent allows kids (and sorry, but 13? is still def. kid) to wear butt floss? And, commando? I have NEVER done that.

Rachael said...

Sometimes, I am glad I don't have a girl. Not very often, but once in a while... that poor girl!

Pamela said...

so... tell me about floss and how it prevents cavities?? giggle.

Crazed Mom said...

Bwahahahahaha. These girls should wear real panties like us old folks.............

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

Give me granny panties anyday. EEEWWWW. That settles it, Poot is never going to party....

Don Mills Diva said...

See - I thought little kids would be more likely to go commando..but what do I know - my son is in diapers...

Kaytabug said...

I started going commando at 18 or 19. It was SO much more comfortable than butt floss!

Kaytabug said...

I meant to add that I stopped going commando after my first child.
