Oops, you did it again. Another crazy night drinking with your crew and you went a few shots too deep as usual.

It’s morning and you’re unexpectedly face-to-face on a pillow with the cute guy/girl you met at the bar last night. You roll over and a million thoughts cross your mind in a matter of seconds: Am I dreaming? What the hell was I thinking? Should I sneak out? What happened last night?

You look over again at your new sleeping buddy, realizing how your drunk goggles did not steer you wrong this time around. Damn, that’s one attractive human being right there.

Hmm…could this turn into something more?

Instead of being embarrassed or immediately taking the “walk of shame”, why not surprise your hottie with breakfast in bed? It will be sure to turn that one-night-stand into something more pleasant. At the least, perhaps they will stick around long enough for round two.
