If you’re going to invite babyless friends to your baby shower, there should be booze, advises Women24 sex columnist Dorothy Black.
So, the other day, I get a call from my mate Gaby.
She: Oh. My. God. Dot.
She: Baby shower.
Me: I’m so sorry.
She: We have to wear pigtails and wear bibs.
Me: *blink*. Maybe it’s to wipe up your vomit?
I’m not great at condolences.
Gaby and I are both babyless women. Babyless women surrounded by baby-making friends. And the time has come for me to ask all you happy mums and mums-to-be out there:
Seriously. What IS it with the baby shower?
ja. this might be the last time i write for parent24. FOUR comments. my ego can't freaking take it. it's taken too many sucker punches to the gut lately. i cry foul. time out.
you'd think people had more interesting things to discuss like the life-changing event of a NEW HUMAN than MY OPINION.
it felt weird writing for the other side anyway. it was like cheating on women24. on my peeps there.
all for 4 comments.
look i'm not a total offspring grinch. just a less than awesome week and it's nothing i even have time to blog about.
