Invited to Buy Present for Near-Stranger's Baby Shower
« on: January 16, 2014, 02:58:16 PM »
I thought I'd seen it all!

Today, I got invited to a baby shower taking place in a Google Hangout. The invitation did not have many words in it, but the links to the gift registries were there!

Crazy.

I wish all baby showers took place on Hangout.  Then I wouldn't have to play those ridiculous diaper-themed games!

I didn't even know those existed. I'll be adding that to my list of reasons I like being a guy.

Oh yeah. In order to get me to play a diaper game, I must have shared a last name with the baby-to-be at some point in my life. It's a rule that has saved me many a time.

At the last baby shower I was forced to attend-one that fit the rules so that I had to play the damn diaper game-all the male people in the house were going mudding that day while the shower was going on. They wouldn't take me with them, despite my begging.
