A Twitter user shared the funny conversation he had with his mother who claimed she was going to a ‘sex party’, and the reality of where the woman was going had the internet in splits.
“My 72 year-old mother just informed me she is going to her first “sex party” and doesn’t know what to bring,” @balmthreat wrote. “After some delicate questioning, ‘Gender Reveal, Mom. It’s called a Gender Reveal’,” he added.

After some delicate questioning, “Gender Reveal, Mom. It’s called a Gender Reveal.”

In a later tweet, the man explained his concerns adding, “Well hearing my Mother, a retired kindergarten teacher, proclaim such a thing – I wanted to ensure that she was going to the appropriate party.”
The tweet created a buzz on the platform with many saying she is not technically wrong. While most said it was the “much needed laugh” in these gloomy times, others shared their own experiences that were similar.
Check out some of the funniest incidents here:
My dad asked me to help him pick out a vibrator for my mom.
Similar gentle questioning (I assume) means I helped him get my mom a back massage.
Also, we called flipflops thongs in the 80s which leads to all sorts of issues with my kids and their grandparents.

Bonus: I ended up having to explain to her why she can’t call them that and she asked me what the purpose of a strap-on was, then from the other room, my dad shouted “LESBIANS!”

My mom once offered to host a coming out party.
For a baby.
It took a while to explain what that usually means these days…😅

My mom is 101, the other evening she had settled it to watch a movie, it was 50 Shades of Grey! I nearly died laughing! Fortunately she turned it off and went to bed before it had been on long. Parental controls takes on a new meaning!

My MIL calls gender neutral names “bisexual names”. Such fun clearing up uncomfortable topics with older folks!

mom said she kept making booty calls. She really meant butt dial. All good.

My dad, when he was 80, told me his doctor had recommended euthanasia. The word he was looking for (the nouns go first) was echinacea.

My then-102-year-old grandmother had an electric back massage pillow you hook on to your chair. She called it her vibrator.
“You look stressed; would you like to use my vibrator?”
“Are you sure? Ten minutes or so and you’ll feel very relaxed.”
We never told her; how could we?

Reminds me of many years ago when my MIL asked if we were buying “Playboys” for our boys for Christmas, then 10 & 8. After we were able to speak again & questioned her, we realized she meant Gameboys.

I remember watching the National Dog Show and they were talking about how one person’s job was to fluff up this poodle’s hair. And the announcer John O’Hurley said “I wish I had a fluffer.”

This reminds me of when my mom asked about my son’s “liquid friend.”
She meant gender fluid. https://t.co/FoMx1plGOl

They should just call them “baby genitalia reveal parties” since that’s all they are. 🤢
