What would make a transmission slip?

(1997 Ford Explorer)
in Lehigh Acres, FL on March 15, 2013
Boyfriend drove my explorer and came home and told me that it wasn't shifting properly. Truck has been sitting for 5 months now and he drove it today and it ran fine. Possible problems?

due for a tranny flush maybe. review when tranny was last serviced. might be a clue there. further if you are going to be leaving it sitting for any length of time, is good practice to run vehicle at least once a month to ensure everything stays lubed.
