“Don’t forget to tell him to wear a cape. Chlamydia is real” – Ruky
“Ouuu babe, your outfit is making me want to sing your praises all night,” my roomie, Ruki, said.
“Ruki, stop exaggerating!” I responded. But I got it, I could eat myself up — I looked that good.
“Hmm, looks like someone signed up for a slutty evening. Judging by that outfit, I bet you aren’t coming home tonight,” Ruki said, staring at me with her “detective eyes”.
“Whatever makes you sleep at night, Ruki,” I responded slightly irritated by her comments. “By the way, have you seen my one night kit? I can’t go out without it.” I asked her, wondering where I dropped my most important bag.
“Oh, here it is. I found it behind the door,” Ruki said as she handed it to me. “By the way, don’t you think having a one night kit makes you look ‘forward and prepared’. I mean, wouldn’t that make guys disrespect you?” She asked.
“The main purpose of having a one night kit is to be prepared. I’m going on a date with a guy that I might end up sleeping with, I need to be able to clean up at least. Carrying a one night kit isn’t a green light for sex, it’s just a precaution cause anything can happen at anytime”. I responded as I applied the final touches of my make up.
“Hmm, I get it now,” Ruky said.
“Okay, I have to go!”
“Don’t forget to tell him to wear a cape. Chlamydia is real!” Ruky yelled as I shut the door.
Nothing’s worse than waking up at a guy’s place feeling…not so fresh. If you have ever woken up in a stranger’s apartment with last night’s makeup smeared all over your face with no idea how to get back home, you know the pain of wishing you had brought a few more stuff with you in your bag. So, for the next time you are on a little adventure hoping to get lucky, remember to bring these little items with you. Because there is no shame in going in prepared.
A one night kit should contain:
This needs no introduction and it shouldn’t be swept under the rug because you are a lady. Kindly remember that “pull out” doesn’t exactly work. You also have to add STD’s and STI’s to your worry book — that’s if you choose to go bare.
2. Emergency Bill
Most people would call this ‘vex money’ but I dont agree. What are you vexing for? Having money in your wallet when stepping out is like the most basic thing that everyone should do. It isn’t wise to leave the house ‘hoping’ someone would take care of your bills.
3. Phone charger
It would be annoying to be low on power on a night out; what if something happens? Just in case of emergency.
You might not get the opportunity to have a shower. In order not to smell like your deeds, it’s best to have a deodorant like a spray, mist or even a perfume.
5. Toothbrush and Toothpaste
6. Lip balm/Gloss
10. Mouthwash/chewing gum/mint sweet
11. Morning after pill
