A Gay Teen Asked His BFF’s Mom If He Could Sleep Over. Her Reply Was Priceless

"Would I, a very homosexual male, be able to take part in the sleepover?"

Gay teen Mason Barclay wanted to attend a sleepover party at his best friend’s house, but her mom had a strict “no boys allowed” rule for overnight visitors.

Mason figured he’d appeal directly to Houston Shelton’s mom to see if she’d make an exception.

“Hey Mrs Shelton!” he wrote in a text. “I am one of Houston’s new best friends. If she had people over on Friday, would I, a very homosexual male, be able to take part in the sleepover?”

“I think the common meaning behind only allowing the same sex to share sleepovers is due to the typical interest in the opposite sex,” he added, “when, in this case, I do not like the opposite sex. Thank you for your time and consideration, have a great night. Amen.”

Mrs. Shelton’s response: “Hmm. Well, my husband is hot. Should I worry?”

Barclay was so tickled by the exchange that he tweeted a screen shot of their conversation on Monday.

Other Twitter users shared his delight.

“I don’t know what exactly is going on here but I’m LOL’ing,” wrote one.

“I think I’m in love with her mom,” another chimed in.

Houston, for her part, responded to all the reactions to her mom’s perceived cuteness in perfect teenage-girl fashion. “I’m over her.”

Hopefully they’ll all be friends again by Friday night when Mason sleeps over.

I believe that true, well-told stories have the power to change the world for good. I also love a good listicle.
