How to Survive a Baby Shower.
1) Bring bottles of wine.
2) Make sure you have at least one other friend there who also drinks wine.
3) Make sure you start drinking early (this makes the baby games funnerer).
4) If you are playing a game where you have to wear pegs around your neck and not say the 'b' word (baby) because if you do say it you will lose a peg, it's most fun to go to the clothes line and pull off pegs to add to your collection. That way you will have A LOT more pegs than everyone else and you will win the game. P.S. No one seemed to notice that I had a ridiculous number of pegs hanging around my neck - more than the number of people actually at the shower (and they weren't even drinking!!!).
5) You might like to start your own game called 'drama' where you acuse a friend of not giving you their peg when they said 'baby' (even though they didn't) and when someone points out you just said the 'b' word tell them they cannot have your peg because the game is rigged! (In fact it is rigged by you.. cos you went to the clothes line earlier and added a few hundred pegs to your own collection but they don't know that).
6) Keep drinking wine.
That's how I survived my friend's baby shower.
P.S. Luckily my friend doens't use the internet.. otherwise I would have to give back the egg cup I won in that 'pegs around your neck' game!
