Over at the DG, I write about my sister's baby shower, and my plan to buy non-pink, non-frilly clothes for my soon-to-be-born niece.
Here's an excerpt:
"Well, I survived my sister’s baby shower.
As baby showers go, it wasn’t bad.
The people were nice, the food was good and there was a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, which probably stemmed from the fact that the shower was held in the home of a friend.
Of course, I was required to do certain things at the shower, like let my pregnant sister Rebecca boss me around. What I found strange was that every time I asked her whether she needed something, she burst out laughing. This made me realize that nobody really expected me to fulfill Rebecca’s every command, and that my willingness to do so took everybody by surprise. Really, it wasn’t hard — all I had to do was refill the occasional glass of water."
