Normally baby showers aren’t my deal. I find them too cutesy with the hats made of wrapping paper and the silly games. However, my friend Missy invited me to her baby shower and I like her and her husband Jeremiah
Aren’t they cute? So I told her I’d go.
Missy and I met about 6 years ago on an opera version of Macbeth. In opera, the non-singing parts are called supernumeraries. In Macbeth, the female supernumeraries were witches all gussied up in vintage black and white dresses and veils. Missy was a super-witch and I was the super-witch dresser.
The opera ran for a week in Tucson and a weekend in Phoenix and I had a great time with the super-witches, drinking at Irish bars after the show and acting completely inappropriate on several occasions.
Since then, Missy and I have stayed in touch while I went on tour and she went to China and when I came back through AZ on my epic road trip, I spent Easter with her and Jeremiah and we went to the roller derby.
This girl clearly has good taste in friends because her girl friends threw her a dinner baby shower open to couples and kids and served “Breakfast for Dinner.”
With tater tots and pigs in blankets. How great is that?
Plus her friends are cool. I love going to a party where I know 2 people and staying much longer than I’d intended because I’m meeting really interesting people.
And when the mom-to-be proves that she can still do splits?
Then you know it’s the Best. Baby. Shower. Ever.
Happy baby shower Missy and Jeremiah! Can’t wait to meet Baby P.W.!
