Sleepover

I seem to be surrounded by temptation at the moment, and it’s proving to be quite a test. Of mind and body, I might add. I wonder if resisting temptation is more important than living for the moment… or maybe there’s no hard and fast rule. Every case on its merits… do unto others… consenting adults… the list could go on and on, couldn’t it? Just don’t tell me to follow my heart – I’ve heard that one before and it didn’t do me any good then, either.

I have a friend from college coming for dinner and a sleepover today. That doesn’t mean she’s a very old friend, because I didn’t graduate until I was 40 (that’s a strange story too - I ended up going back as a tutor after surprising myself. And everyone else, for that matter). Anyway, we’ve kept in touch over the last few years, and the idea is that she sleeps in one of the children’s rooms. The problem is, of course, that there’s a bit of attraction there, and the wine will be flowing tonight.

Anyway, I had an email from the girl I went out with last Saturday, saying she was a little perplexed. And that she had detected a slight “disconnect” towards the end of the evening. I thought I’d sent a fairly unambiguous response, although Zooz, having cast her beady eye over the correspondence, said that she’ll now be more perplexed than ever. (Mind you, she’s a right one to talk!)

Right… I have some dinner to cook, so I won’t ramble on any further. I haven't had a lot of time to visit all my favourite blogs today, but cut me just a little slack. I'm not at my most organised this week, for some reason.

I have had to deal with that very thing this past week, and this is what I think: sometimes, resisting temptation is better. Living in the moment is important, but if you can already forsee negative consequences, then sometimes prudence is the way to go. You know what they say... "discretion is the better part of valour."

Now, if only I could follow my own advice.

You and me both, Blue... you and me both.

unforgiving bitch said...

I agree with blue...temptation is hard to resist...

I'm glad I don't have to make that decision...

Of course, my biggest one at the moment is whether or not to eat the cookie or stay on my healthier eating plan.

The cookie is winning.

hamrose said...

I'd be disorganized too, if I had so many...uh...distractions to choose from. Just B safe...and of course, enjoy the feast while it lasts.

heather said...

lol this is a redundant conversation

if you are having her over
you've already given enough thought to sleeping with her
that you know at least something isn't just right about the other girl....

so i think you would be best to be honest with both of them and see if you could all end up in bed together.

;)

and then tell us about it.
in detail.

Too many women, too little time....

Angel said...

I'm sooo NOT good at resisting temptation.

But resisting it often feels better than living/savouring the actual temptation!

lee ann said...

I can't wait to hear what happens...keep me posted!

kimmyk said...

I say have at it. As many times and with as many ladies as you can. Just make sure all the windows and doors are locked before you head off to the bedroom.

Oh yah and think responsibly. *wink wink*

Have fun and enjoy yourself. Who knows when the next dry spell may come along.

wdky? i think you are too cute :)))

One of the reasons I come here, is to read each days drama. It's almost like a soap opera.

T said...

I find I have an appetite for slow revelation. I enjoy getting to know someone in small bits, rather like undressing them. With slow measured movements to prolong the experience.

Each thing revealed, each intimate detail, like a small taste that leaves me hungry for another tantalizing bite.

I find it is the mundane things that I am most attracted to. That spin in my head until satisfied. Like what cologne do you wear? Then I must purchase it myself. See how it smells on me. The thought of what you would order at a restaurant, which coffee at a cafe?
Passion unrequited is sad, and the stuff of poets, not of men who want to feel that satisfaction.

Temptation comes in many forms.
Each one delectable in it's own way when satisfied.
I think you'll find that temptation is rather like food. Some we want to devour quickly and greedily, others cry to be savored, rolled around on the tongue just for the pure pleasure of it.

I hope your evening was lovely...
and the morning is even more wonderful.

wdky said...

UB, eat the cookie! With a nice strong cup of coffee!

Hammy, the distractions are... err... distracting. I'm doing mt best, though.

Heather - at last. A serious suggestion :-)

Yoursecret... I wish! Really.

Angel, you're so right. Decisions, decisions...

Lee Ann - you'll be the first to know!

Kimmy... ROFL! I check them about a dozen times, then have to go downstairs after I get into bed to check them again. It's playing havoc with my love life.

Anna - too true. Soon, knowing my luck.

Dark, thanks. At least that's the slack sorted.

Anu, really? I think you're cute too :-)

Nukie, it warms my heart to know that I give you such pleasure.

T... I think I'm going to have to go for a lie down. I'm having a hot flush.

mez said...

okay, is sleeping together going to make the friendship go 'bad'? If you think it might, then depending on how much you value her friendship then it's probably not worth it, but if this isn't going to be a problem, hey...why not? ;) Have fun!

networkchic said...

Well if giving into the temptation won't have adverse effects, then follow your...well you know. :-)

k o w said...

Sure the plan was for her to sleep in the kids room but you both knew damn well what it all meant when you made the plans for a sleepover.

I challenge you to stay the course and remain outside of her panties tonight. See if you can do it.

NML said...

Has anyone ever said to you that you get more ass than a toilet seat? I don't think you ever go short for some female company!

Nancy said...

Ok... it's a day later and no post... your killing me man!!!

wdky said...

Mez, you're very pragmatic. I like it :-)

NWC - follow my what, exactly??

KOW, I'm about to reveal all, so to speak.

NML - ROFL!!! I've never heard that expression before, but I must admit that it would be slightly inaccurate to call me sexually frustrated.

Nancy, hi, and sorry. I'll go write my post now!!
