Keg in the Bathtub

In Kalamazoo, Melissa and I score an upgrade to a suite at the Radisson. It’s enormous.

Melissa: This room is the first time I’ve ever wished I was a teenager again, so we could throw a raging party.
Me: And have hot teenage sex.
Melissa: There’s no such thing as hot teenage sex.
Me: What!? You’re forgetting all about the hot teenage boys.
Melissa: I guess you could have like twenty seconds of hot teenage sex.
Me: Hot teenage hotel room sex with someone in the bed next to you who has to pretend to be asleep.
Melissa: Haaaaaaahhht.

    Wow. So people really did have those kinds of parties in high school? I somehow wish it was only a figment of my nerd girl imagination. It turns out I actually was missing out on something.

    And then the room phone rings, and it’s your mother, and she’s PISSED…

    Holy flashback, Batman!

    You forgot the pint bottle of schnaps that gets all 12 people in the room WASTED beyond belief.

  • Sethonious Says:

    Oh and the Boone’s farm Strawberry hill.

    Hot teenage making out. That was the hot part. The sex, not so much.

  • Kristen Says:

    And remember all that alcohol we poured in great big garbage cans so everyone could just dip their cups in? Oh man…

  • Sara Says:

    umm…when I was in undergrad in Kalamazoo I think I actually was at a party very much like that, at that particular hotel even…but it was a garbage pail of jungle juice instead of the keg in the bathtub. ‘Cause the hosts wanted to keep it classy.

    It’s like I don’t even know you.

    There are many about sex, for example, sexy girls, sexy woman, sexy and so on

    Oh, teenage sex, I’d forgotten. Shudder.

  • Rebecca Says:

    I live in good ol’ Kalamazoo, MI and am bummed that I missed you! I’ve just started reading your blog (thanks to dooce). I’ll actually be getting married at the very hotel you stayed at in less than a year. Hope you enjoyed the zoo as much as I do!

  • Janer Says:

    DAMN IT! You were right here! In Kalamazoo! And I didn’t know! *sigh*. I’ve been reading your blog so long that I found it through EOD back in 2001 or something.

    HOpe you enjoyed the Starship Radisson; just so you know, that’s where the aliens will land someday.

    I, too, am a lifetime Kalamazoo resident. Did you hit our antique market while you were here, not to mention the great restoration stores next to it?
