The Special Occasion for a Girls' Night Out

It was the usual Yat* Sisters' night out; but Jane made a reservation at their hangout for dinner for the amazing six. Sometimes it's a good idea if you have a large group and want a table for a festive dinner. (Jane was a little obsessive-compulsive; she got nervous if things were left up to chance.)

Anyway, apparently the hostess was cheerful and accommodating as a good hostess should; and she asked if it was a special occasion. Jane rather flippantly answered, "Oh, we're celebrating Megan's loss of virginity." And thought no more about it, since she thought that the hostess, who knew them, was aware that she was kidding.

Came the girls' night out. They were seated at a really good table for six, and the waiter brought a nice wine. Hey, the service got ramped up since last time it seemed! And the guitarist came and performed a soulful song for Megan and gave her a single, long-stemmed rose. All of us, Jane included, were confused.

Finally, Jane figured it out: the restaurant hostess took her remark literally, and they were really celebrating Megan's loss of virginity! 

After dinner, while the girls were having some coffee before going to a club, the waitress brought out a cake made in the form of a woman's torso to mark the festive occasion. Jane was embarrassed at thing turn of things; and never got up the nerve to tell Megan or the others why those special attentions were provided! 

Did it stop Jane from making offhand, flippant comments in the future? No, making flip remarks is a habit that's hard to break even when you occasionally get hoisted by your own petard. During the next girls' night out, Megan remarked that she enjoyed the celebration of her loss of virginity. It was more fun than when it originally occurred ten years before!

Megan earned some valuable good sport points; always a good deal when the Yat Sisters are hanging out together!

That turned out better than the fake birthday ruse.

Now that is how to celebrate losing virginity! Or doing it under amusing, non-threatening ways!

I think that is a fantastic story - if I were you, I'd bring it back out now and then, ha ha.

What a great story, and certainly not something many would think to celebrate. Awesome cake!

I think that Megan handled it well; and all managed to have a great time!

I wonder if I can talk my daughter into baking a cake like that for my birthday ... nah, probably not.
