    Red wine coming out of my pores....

    Okay, so last night I hosted a girls night on the back deck with a bunch of the moms from school, etc. We drank....a lot.....of wine. I drank red and was "elegantly wasted" by the end of the night (or morning depending how you look at it!). Anyway, by the time everyone left I just peeled off my dress and fell into bed in just my knickers. When I woke up this morning I find that where I slept on my bed, my white sheets are now PINK!!!! Have you ever heard of such a thing? Totally weird and figured if anyone had had it happen before it would be someone here!

    Here's a photo - it's pretty bad quality as I took it with my phone -

    Wow! How warm was it last night, that you ended up 'sweating wine?'

    I've never had that happen (but vodka is clear, so who knows!). That is bizarre though!

    You didn't happen to be wearing a new red top last night?

    I would imagine that some of the dye from the dress was on your skin and, with maybe a little sweat, the color just leached onto your sheets.

    But how would the red get on my pillow??? I wasn't wearing the dress on my head! =) Although I have to say that I really like ya'll's explanation better than my initial reaction. I was totally freaked out when I got up!

    I don't know about you, but when I have a bit too much to drink, I don't sleep very well and I seem to toss and turn. So, perhaps that would explain how the pink got on your pillow?

    Mystery solved.

    Thank you, O Wise Ones.

    I feel a little silly that I didn't think of the red dress possibility myself....oh well.

    Hilarious.

    I'm sitting here LITERALLY laughing out loud.

    Of COURSE it was the dye from your red dress. Oh my god. I can't stop laughing.

    I'm so glad you had fun. I would have freaked out when I woke up and saw that. Like the time when I was 9 and I ate a whole box of Boo Berry cereal. The next day I ran screaming to my mother because I was SURE I was dying from some terrible and rare purple poo disease.

    What an awesome way to start a holiday weekend. Thanks!!!!

    Too bad it wasn't in the shape of the Virgin Mary or Jesus. You could have sold the sheets on ebay for a ton of money...

    TOO FUNNY !!!!! Thanks for the morning laugh. The picture first reminded me of the crime scene photos where they outline the body. If you look closely you can almost make out the shape. The classic was one of the Naked Gun movies where the person drowned and the outline of the body was floating on the water . Are you sure it was the dress?

    Having had nights of extreme red wine consumption myself I just figured it had to be the clothes you wore as I've never had red/pink sheets.

    OMG! I'm cracking up reading this. Not at you Terri. I LOVE my wine and have overdone it on more than a few occassions. This sounds like something that would happen to me!

    I think a better thread title would have been "A picture of my stained sheets after a night of hard partying".

    It does take a while for all that wine to get out of your system, you know.

    Thank you for all the funny posts here! Terri, mind where you place that dress if the red is bleeding or I see a lot of pink in your future Glad you had a good party.

    Hee. I'm glad I stopped my red wine consumption tonight before that happened to me!

    But hey, if too many carrots can turn your skin orange, than why not pink sheets from red wine?

    Heehee. Thanks for the laugh. This is cracking me up.
    And yeah, you probably still had plenty of that red wine in your system when you got up this morning, so the thinking required to figure out that it would have been the red dress was probably not going to happen (based on MY experiences with heavy red wine consumption).

    I'm giggling over this too - especially since there have been a few morning-afters when the alcohol is still coming out the pores! I didn't think of the obvious until I read Susan's post, and I'm perfectly sober at the moment!

    I'm so glad that my moment of being an idiot could entertain so many this holiday weekend!

    Too funny! Educational if you really think about it. Never wear red and drink red wine.

    Good thinking!

    I, too, am laughing out loud (again, not at you Terri). I would have SO thought the same thing and freaked out as well. I'm glad the mystery is solved.

    PS: Did the red/pink come out in the wash or do you have a souvenir of the occasion????

    Terri - I would totally have freaked out about that too! Thanks for sharing - it did make me laugh on the first day back to work after a long weekend!
