Woman Shares the Delightfully Specific Slumber Party Plan She Made When She Was 8
Are you a planner or more of a “fly by the seat of your pants” kinda gal? Maybe you float in between, planning out the vague details around a set time and leave it up to chance as to whether it happens to schedule or not?
Whether you are a Type A planner or the more spontaneous type, this woman’s slumber party plans that she drew up when she was a little girl are so specifically rigid that it is positively delightful.
Allocating strict time limits to various elements of fun, Emily Flake’s plans for the best slumber party ever manages to pack a lot of activity into her overnight event.
Sharing her adorable plans on Twitter, Emily writes: “I’ve never planned a better party than the one I planned when I was 8.”
We can’t decide if our favourite activity is putting on makeup and giggling or all the laying about talking about how things are so mean.
Sounds like quite the event, and one we’d very much enjoy, honestly. Especially with all the donuts, regular reading breaks and pillow “fiting”.
Emily, a teacher, cartoonist and writer, described the thoughts on how she came up with her amazing party plan.
“I was an extremely scatterbrained and disorganised child, but I loved making these kinds of plans as an exercise in fantasy play,” she says.
“As I recall I also made club charters and magazines like this, but it was more of an extension of imagining the best-case scenario for a thing I wanted to do. And people who were kids in the 80s will understand that this is not the sort of thing one’s parents helped with, unless you somehow managed to break an arm writing it.”
When asked what is her favorite part in this party plan and if she was to throw a party today, would there be anything she would definitely include from this list, she said this:
“It’d be a toss-up between ‘making funny faces and making remarks,’ and ‘lying around talking about how some things are soooooo mean.’ I would absolutely include both of these activities in any post-pandemic get-together!”
That’d be a party we’d love to attend!
