Whaat? You did the same thing to me three years ago.

IE threw a baby shower for Plosh? Are we talking medical miracles here?

I don't know if my wife has forgiven me for the baby shower we threw for HER. You see, I kept the thing a complete surprise, because I was supposed to. Because of this, and because of the fact that I am clueless, I didn't think to tell my wife that perhaps she shouldn't wear a shirt with horizontal stripes that day. In addition, etiquette dictated that ALL of her co-workers be invited, including the one with whom she did not get along.

The result was beautifully captured on video:

1. Video shot of wife walking down hall into her parents' living room.

2. Audio of everyone yelling "Surprise!"

3. Video shot of wife turning around and walking back down the hall.

4. Video shot of husband running after wife.

5. Video shot of husband leading (dragging?) wife back to surprise party.

I ran home and got her a different shirt for the party, and she forgave me. I think.

OE: I always try to dress as if I might run into somebody I hate. I don't want to give them the excuse to tell their friends, "Gee, I ran into Anne and she looked HORRIBLE. Heh heh."

how sweet!! As I've said before, you've got a great husband there!

Chip: Thanks! I happen to agree.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can.
