I have never been to one before, is it a uniquely American ritual? Or is it just the name that's unfamiliar? I've had sleepovers for my own kids, but I didn't ever have a whole gang of girls to stay the night when I was growing up.
So my only reference point is Grease. I trust this is historically accurate.
Fabulous, no? I've been inspired!
Won't go to bed till I'm legally wed - don't think anyone's asking actually, not with that miserable face.
...I can't, I'm Sandra Dee!
I have never seen a Sandra Dee movie. But she is very pretty.
It's a funny thing but playing at being Sandy seems to make me very simpering and po-faced. It's obviously no fun being a goody-two-shoes.
As for you, Troy Donahue -
I know what you wanna do...
I've brought hot chocolate and marshmallows, everyone. What do you mean, where's the booze?
Hey, I'm Doris Day. I was not brought up that way.
I don't drink....
Well, maybe just a little nip of gin. This is a little closer to the real me, ha!
Keep your filthy paws off my silky drawers.
Elvis, Elvis, let me be!
Keep that pelvis far from me. Phwooarr!
Just keep your cool, now you're starting to drool...

Oh Sandy, how could you?
