"The Dog" Party Supplies
First birthday parties are interesting. My sister just had one for her first-born, and decided to go with "The Dog" as the theme. Guys, a little advice: When your significant others want to walk right into the new mother's house and join the party, do yourselves a favor and go around back, directly to the beer and the other guys who are hiding out. That, or bring earplugs. Why? Because when a bunch of expectant mothers (or mothers of newborns or toddlers) get together in a big group and see cute little pictures of dogs, a collective "Awwww.....iiiieeeeEEEEEEEEEEEE" comes out. I swear, it's like being around a group of 14-year old girls at a Beatles concert. I would have called my friends to complain about it, but I don't think I'm going to be getting my hearing back for the next month or so. Hence, the TN rec.... and the sage advice for the fellas. Buy The Dog party supplies. Invest in foam earplugs. Sit outside. Drink beer. And pray. Pray like you've never prayed in your entire prayerful existence. Pray to gods you don't even believe in. Pray to the almighty dollar. Pray to St. Nick. I don't care. Just pray.
