Yes, you did read that correctly.

It's sleepover night at my house for the teens.  I appear to have ended up with 2 couples, my DS being one of the lads.

Both girls are currently wearing carrot onesies.  While I am grateful that they are covered quite literally from head to foot, the sight of 2 teenaged girls wearing vegetable dressing gowns / sleeping bag costume things is somewhat disturbing, as I'm sure you can imagine.

I am the Boss Person In Charge Of No One Getting Pregnant.  So, EB, I turn to your collective wisdom to ask how I should address this.  To keep it simple I shall do this by multiple choice.

What Should I Do?

1.  Immediately run out and buy Brussel Sprouts snuggies for both boys, a hot glue gun and some duct tape and go mad.

2.  Call the girls' parents to ask why they are dressed like vegetables

3.  Stock up on condoms

4.  Make both girls sleep in my bed while I lie curled in the foetal position in my doorway with a handy dandy pitbull and Ninjah Kitteh at my side

5.  Call a cab and go to the nearest club that stays open until work starts tomorrow

6.  Make the boys sleep in a tent in the garden and lock all of the doors

7.  Dress like a vegetable myself in the hope that it will confuse them

8.  Call a friend

9.  Hop in the Tardis and go back to a sweet, sweet time before teenaged hormones.

10.  All of the above

All of the Above.

It's the only viable option.

Given that after reading that, I still don't know what a carrot slankie is, I pick 9. Seems like the safest option to me.

I say condoms, but they aren't my babies.

Karla, it's like a cross between a blanket / sleeping bag / dressing gown, carrot coloured, narrows towards the feet and has a hood with green fronds coming out of it.

Cook them a meal of Brussel sprouts, baked beans, onions, cabbage - that way they will be too busy farting to consider making luuuurve.

Also, smear Vicks under your nostrils.

I'm leaning towards duct tape.

I also considered farty food, but I'm fairly sure they won't eat it.

wow.. I say all of the above and I want to know where you get a carrot slankie from?

#13 Guest_LeChatNinjah_*

Posted 17 December 2012 - 11:18 PM

I stand corrected.

They are not slankies / snuggies.  They are onesies.  Carrot onesies.

From Ebay.

If they want to have sex, they will, it only takes ten minutes including putting your carrot back on . Put condoms somewhere your child knows about, have them tell the rest about it and go to bed.

ERMAGERD, Rawr wants me to drug my teenaged houseguests on stuff that is likely to hype them up moar?

Bad Mummeh Award for YOU!

Is it wrong that I now want a green bean onesie?

(don't answer that)

Well I'm certain if I wore that DP wouldn't bonk me haha in face I think he would be laughing too hard at me dressed like a carrot...

Do you still have a baby monitor hanging around? Set it up in the room and tell them you WILL hear them...nothing creepier then your mum listening to you when your friends are over... Don't tell the, about the god awful shriek they make when unplugged wink.gif

That's it.

I'm sleeping on the couch and putting DD in DS's room.

And Ninjah is on high alert.  I confess I imagined up the pit bull.

Are they 1 direction fans by any chance? The carrot thing might be a 1D reference. Dd13 was blabbering on about someone in 1D and carrots whilst I was chopping  carrots for dinner, I can't tell you more I autotune out at the mention of Harry, Niall, Louis, Liam and the other one whose name escapes me at the moment.

Is this particular carrot thread going to become EB folklore too?
