So, I've been invited to a baby shower in a weeks time. Never been to one and I'm here to ask what I should do. How do I deal with a room of people cooing over a belly bump? What is expected of me? What should I expect of the event? How long is long enough to stay so as not to be rude, but not drain my social battery?

Steps I have taken so far (in chronological order):
1) Located hip flask that has a book shaped container
2) Responded to the RSVP
3) Posting here (syuu gave me a kick up the bum tongue.gif)

Please Matazonians, I implore you to share you survival techniques and offer any advice on etiquette and social juice depletion management.

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.

Get the baby a set of throwing knives. They'll appreciate the early skills when the world destroys itself over oil.
