My aunt is getting married in October. Annabelle will be a flower girl, which I am pretty excited about. This is my aunt's second marriage as well as her fiance's second. The have no need for a shower because they already have two of everything so my mother decided that we should throw her a personal shower/stagette.
I came home from grocery shopping today to a message on the answering machine from my mom. She sounded so giddy that I was clueless as to what was up. My mom is not a giddy person. The she starts telling me about her need for dick cake pans, cookies, and do i know where to find a stripper (I don't). I'm in charge of invites. I have to decide how, as my mother put it, silly I want them to be. The party will include about 12 women ranging in age from 72 (my gram) to 18 (my cousin). I know that I will also have to make a penis pinata and my mom, sister and I will be heading over to the local porn store for goody bag options.
Part of me thinks that this is weird. I don't want to look at kinky sex toys with my mom, but at the same time, I'm not a prude. Luckily there will be copious amounts of alcohol involved with the party so that will lower my inhibitions. This is just another one of those things that make me realize that being an adult is bizarre. When I was in my late teens, even my twenties, my mom would have never done any of these kinds of things with me. I guess being 32, married with a child has put me on more equal footing. Weird!
