This Is Actually What It's Like To Get Slimed

Turns out dreams are made of green guck.

Posted on

Since the dawn of the '90s, kids across the nation have had one shared dream: to get slimed.

We all wanted to get on Double Dare, Slime Time Live, and Figure It Out just to get a taste of that sweet green goo.

Today, I got to achieve that goal.

Me. A grown-ass woman.

But also just a regular '90s kid who dared to dream.

The folks over at Nickelodeon let me get green and dirty during a "slime test" for their upcoming Kids' Choice Sports Awards.

This was at the Pauley Pavilion at UCLA in Los Angeles.

This was at the Pauley Pavilion at UCLA in Los Angeles.

I was told to wear clothes that I didn't "care about ruining," so this is what I went with.

Don't judge my room, I just moved in.

This was the stage on which we were to test slime, and also the stage on which my dreams would come true.

It's a little shaky, but here's my first foray into the wonderful world of slime.

FYI that tub we're sitting in had a layer of stagnant slime sitting in it already. Here I am reveling in the fact that my feet and hair are now covered in this sacred childhood goop.

Then they hit us with a SECOND SLIME. But it didn't really touch me. I managed to smile through this devastating disappointment, but you can see my heart breaking as it happens.

The third slime was the longest. It was like taking a beautiful slime shower.

The dude sitting next to me had just explained to the children that he had waited a long time to experience this. Me too, '90s brother, me too.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

You wanna know how they did the fourth slime? BY SPRAYING IT THROUGH A FREAKIN' CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT WAS COMING.

OK now I know y'all have some questions about slime, like "What does it feel like?" Well, it's super goopy and craaaaazy slippery!

Slime is basically like a more liquid-y snot. Very viscous. This man had to hold me like a baby to make sure I didn't slip and break my face.

It gets EVERYWHERE.

Seriously, I kept finding gobs of it in weird crevices.

If slime touches it, it's gone forever.

These were my shoes. Goodbye shoes.

And finally, the most important question: what does slime taste like? Drumroll please...

Yeah, I ~sneakily~ got a little taste.

... Nothing. It tastes like nothing. Nothing with a hint of soap maybe. It also smells like nothing.

There's some speculation that it contains baby shampoo, which I totally believe. My hair felt super soft after I took a shower.

Despite having a gross, slimy neck...

... and my shower drain look like this afterwards...

... I would still say getting slimed was the best experience my inner child (OK, and my adult self) could ever have had.
