“When the little boys come over, bedroom's where we play”
How to Identify a Bedroom
One can identify a bedroom in many ways:
- When reading a blueprint, bedrooms will be designated as such on the plan. This is evidence that the room is meant to hold a bed.
- One can look into a room, and if there is a bed, chances are good that it's a bedroom.
- One can also decide that a room is, in fact, a bedroom by simply deciding to treat it a such, because it suits that particular purpose.
- If you are to stumble upon pornography, there is an 85% chance you are in the room of the male teenager. The other percentage left is the chance of it being the basement of the creepy ass pedophile next door.
What Is Not a Bedroom
If a room has a sleeper-sofa and contains the front door to your house/trailer, it is not the bedroom, but the living room. That's where Uncle Rusty just sleeps it off.
If a room is decorated in black leather, or is equipped with a sling and various whips, that is not a bedroom, but a fetish chamber, or a common dungeon. If your parents have a fetish chamber in their house, it is likely that they practice their fetishes in that room, and it's not a place that you want to be anywhere near. Unless if you want to join them for some fucked up reason, of course.
If the room has either one bed or two beds in it, and there is a picture on the back of the door stating the maximum allowed rate you can pay to sleep in that room, it is not a bedroom, but a hotel or motel room. If you ever find yourself in a hotel room, no matter how nice it is, do not touch the bedspreads under any circumstances, because people have done things on them that polite people do not discuss.
Your Parents' Bedroom
Your parents' bedroom may contain one large bed, or two smaller beds. If you are old enough to read this article, then you are too old to spend the night with your parents, in their bed, in their bedroom. If they have separate beds, and you are still spending the night in one of those beds, you are most likely a citizen of Kentucky.
Your parents will probably have a nightstand at either end of the bed. This is where your mother keeps her diaphram, and your father hides his Playboy magazines. If Daddy has a copy of Honcho stuffed inside of his latest issue of Playboy, then be extra-nice to your Mom. If you find your parents also keep their stash in the nightstand, do not touch; Mommy and Daddy need it much more than you do.
Most likely, your parents had sex in the bedroom more frequently with each other, as opposed to other people who were not your parents, unless they were swingers. If your parents were swingers, then they probably had sex in many places, with many people — the bedroom actually being the least imaginative place in which they fornicated.
If your parents have a mirrored ceiling, then they are probably retired swingers, or just dirty old people.
If you parents are old and Jewish, then they will have faux gold swag-lamps (with tassel-pulls) hanging above the nightstands. If you are good, one day they'll be yours.
Parents may also choose to have their own separate bedrooms. This is because (a) your father has a sex problem, (b) your mother snores, or (c) they can't stand being around each other.
What Lurks In the Bedroom
Monsters often inhabit the bedroom closet or live under the bed which occupies the bedroom. The monsters aren't there to scare you, they are there so you can scare yourself, which is more enjoyable to the monster and makes less mess.
Under your bed lurk your fears. You may not see them down there, but they're definitely there. If they succeed in frightening you, then you must sleep with the covers pulled tightly over your head — it is your only hope for survival.
Dust-mites also dwell in the bedroom, on the sheets that cover the bed, where they exist by feeding off of the sleeper's blood. In fact, the population of dust-mites living in your bed is greater than the population of Los Angeles. Ever feel a tickle on your leg? That is a dust-mite moving a single body hair to get a better bite-hold on your thigh.
When Is a Bedroom Not a Bedroom?
If a bedroom is made over to serve the needs of an infant, it then sheds its bedroom status and becomes "the Baby's Room."
Once you leave (i.e., are kicked out of) your parents' house, the bedroom can be converted into your father's new office, or your mother's yoga studio. If your father does not work at home, and your mother does not practice yoga, then your bedroom can become "your grandmother's room."
What About the Maid's Room?
We're glad you brought that up. If you are being raised in a good home, then the fifth or sixth bedroom is given over to the maid, who may or may not choose to spend the night in it, thereby making it a bedroom as well. The maid's room is almost always painted light blue with white trim, and contains either a single twin bed, or a double bed. There is also an occasional chair, and a small table with a serviceable lamp on it. On the table you will find your mother's outdated issues of Town & Country, which she is sure are of interest to the maid.
If you are currently in the process of being raised in a house that has fewer than five bedrooms within, then you have our sympathy.
