18. They were not in a club
Laundry was my job as a teenager. There were just times when I wished my parents had done their own bedding, towels, etc. Now, as a grown man with kids, I ask myself why they would leave that just lying around, especially if their kid does the laundry. To be fair, finding spooge laying around only happened a couple of times, but it stayed with me. And when they would go to a hotel, half the time they would stick me with babysitting the other couple's kids for free.

Of course, back then, it was called "swinging," even though my parents didn't call it that in front of me, anyway. It was just something they did. The irony was that, when I was 17 and had a steady girlfriend, they gave me no end of grief about having sex in the house, because it made them uncomfortable.
