Did you know there was a day in the calendar dedicated to the one night stand? No? Well, neither did we! Till a few seconds ago when we received a text message wishing us “419快乐!” (Happy 419!).
Here in China, the number “419” is codeword for “one night stand” because it’s an approximate homonym for “for one night”. And that makes April 19 the unofficial One Night Stand Day among Chinese youngsters.
So here’s the good news and the bad news. Let’s start with the bad: If you’re reading this right now, you’re probably a loser (like us) wallowing in your own loneliness at home. And here’s the good news: You’ve got 2 hours 40 minutes left to turn that situation around!
Happy One Night Stand Day, everybody!
