Buick gives me a chance to demonstrate why I don't get invited to baby showers
1. This woman's only job for the baby shower was to pick up the cake- and she couldn't get the sex of the child right? Did nobody tell her, or did she hear wrong, or did she not bother to ask?
2. "You know she's having a boy, right?" Um, unless she's dropping that cake off at another baby shower before heading to the one you're both going to, she clearly DIDN'T know. Again, why not?
3. Is this how it works- when you go to a baby shower and bring a cake and you think that the guest of honor is having a girl, you make sure the cake is pink and has "GIRL" in fake blocks on it? Why not just blocks of any color which read "HUMAN MAMMAL" or "PERSON?" Wouldn't that be thinking-outside-the-box clever? Or at least more clever than pink icing and "GIRL?"
I sure think so. But I don't go to these things normally. I'm going to one in a few weeks because my awesome great-nephew will be there and I don't pass up any opportunity to be with that little guy, not even a baby shower. I'll bring him a set of Hot Wheels, and I'm quite certain he won't care at all what color they are.
