scattered showers

overheard at our friend l's baby shower (which we threw for her), while l's aunt was talking to my beloved:

l's aunt - so, why do you and ru have the same phone number?
m - because we live in the same house?
l's aunt - and you don't have separate phones?
m - no... we have separate cell phones...
l's aunt - so, are you going to buy your husband a nice diaper bag like that one (points to diaper bag received by c, l's husband)?
m - no, i don't think my husband will need one!

some paradigms are just to big to breach at a baby shower!

Heteronormativity sucks.

Ru - very funny recap of the event in question! Something tells me that nothing was going to breach that particular paradigm in that particular adorable great-aunt-to-be anyway...

And, Ru and M - beautiful work organizing the lovely shower!

k - we all forgot cameras. :(
A. took pics, but on a traditional camera. So, after she gets them developed we could probably scan them.
