As the old Chinese proverb says:

Better to light a single flip-flop



than to curse the darkness.

Ahhh, door prizes. At my sister's baby shower, I got a "Keep Off The Grass" post that you stick in the ground. The goats showed their approval by stepping on and breaking it while they were mowing the yard.

I used to think it was very sexist, the way men are kept out of baby showers.

But the more I read about them, the more I'm okay with it.

I like those as a party decoration. My daughter's birthday is in August, and she own 37 flip-flops. I think I'm gonna funfur a pair and see if they catch on fire!
Franklin, bridal showers are worse because no matter how many ways you can use a condom somebody always come up with one more.

Hahahahahahahaha.


Franklin, you should have come to mine. It was co-ed, with no games and a cooler of beer. I didn't get to drink, but a good time was had by all.

Even if the men did huddle in the front yard.

I've been to one bridal shower in all my life, and never wish to go to any other shower-related event.

Did the mother-to-be love your knitted sweater-jacket at least (just trying to see if she has any taste whatsoever)?

Well, it beats plastic corn cob holders that break when you take them out of the package, which is what I won at a baby shower once.

(Remind me sometime to tell you how I (inadvertently, actually) asked a question at one shower I attended with my mother for one of her friends' daughters that caused her to never make me go to one with her again. You'll appreciate it.)

Just when I think I've seen all the tat that exists in the world...

Hmmm...so, you're suggesting I should rethink what I'm putting in the "Welcome" packages at FibreFest North?

Carol said...

Only if the flip-flops are red with a maple leaf on the strap.

Carol said...

Hmmm, where to put such wondrous ornaments?

Carol said...

At least you got something you won't be stuck with forever! Flip-flops go over pretty well down here;) The sweater is gorgeous! Very lucky is the little recipient!

Do the candles by any chance smell like feet?

Carol said...

Stinky feet? Athlete's feet? or -- best of all -- baby feet?
