So? At every baby shower I’ve been to, the hosts handed us drinks about as fast as we could drink them. The only one sober there was the mom-to-be, cause she had to be. And I’m a girl. As long as you’re not driving, why not?
In the last 5 years or so there’s been a big trend to have “Jack and Jill” showers — for both wedding showers as well as baby showers. I’ve been to about 6 or 7. They are usually cocktail parties and spare *everyone* from having to sit and watch one person open 50 gifts.
@GoodOne: I’ve never been to a baby shower where alcohol was served, so I was assuming if people were going to be getting wasted at a baby shower, the mother to be would probably be drinking as well. Maybe I’m too quick to judge, but I guess in my mind I didn’t envision the mother staying sober as she watched all of her guests get wasted. It’s not like I thought the mother’s name was Brent.
@boditty… hopefully you can’t (unless that person is stupid and gives themselves away). I’ve submitted 4 or 5 things, and if something ever does get put up, I really don’t want anyone knowing it was me, haha. (at least not the subject of it).
@Man: If you score with the mother-to-be, you don’t even need a condom. It’s not like she can get MORE pregnant…
@Too Soon? : I’ll be there… I’ll bring the dip, or at least something that resembles dip.
This post is hilarious! I was just at a couples baby shower last wknd that involved lots of drinking and ended with two friends in a near fistfight and also a domestic dispute from the couple putting the party on. The best part is this was a group of fairly normal, late 20′s, professional people. God seeing this post made my night I cant stop laughing.
