Friday Fun

My husband is flying to Vegas for a baby shower.
 


This is true. Yet, it's a strange sentence.  Vegas and baby shower -- sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? 

(And yes, we're talking about the traditional baby shower with cute little outfits and one very pregnant mom-to-be.)  

I shouldn't have to explain that part, but Vegas DOES have a reputation for extreme & excessive behavior.

So here's the deal.  I originally typed up a post and explained this sentence, but it was BORING.  So, we're going to make a game out of it, instead.  If it works, we might make this a regular Friday Feature.  

So use your imagination...why would my husband be flying unchaperoned from IOWA to Vegas?  Be as creative as you like!  I'll post the *real* story tomorrow.



On another note....

I need your HELP


My boss is looking to buy a bar code scanner to log all his books at the office and home.  If he buys this scanner, he will let me borrow it so I can do mine too.  Yeah, that'd be way cool.  Have any of you used something like this?  Were you happy with the results?  What did you use (brand/website/some identifiable information)?

Your husband is flying unchaperoned to Vegas to legally marry the mother of his 5 bastard children. It's about time, ya know. He finally wants to do the "honorable" thing so his legitimate children with you can someday be proud when they learn about their polygamist father, who at the very least, did the right thing.

Sorry...you asked for it ;-)

Your husband is flying to vegas for a "baby shower" because his good friend just lost his job and can't provide for the mom-to-be so he thought it best to take a chance and gamble in Vegas to help his friend in need. What a nice guy you have!!!

I don't have a barcode scanner so I can't offer any advice, sorry!

Your guy is flying to Vegas because his wife ran up the credit cards bills with all those darns books she keeps on buying! With his last $100 dollars, he's going to see if he can't hit the jackpot, pay off those nasty bills, and buy his honey the biggest, best library in the world. Awe...

Sorry I can't help with the other question.

Because you've left your husband and become the mistress of a Las Vegas casino maffia ring leader and are having his bastard child. So hubby is coming to the shower to win you back by beating the bad guy at a game of black jack.

Because his best man from your wedding is part of a black market experiment to become the first pregnant man, which of course MUST be based in sin city, and who can resist going to a baby shower for THAT?

Can't wait to hear the story. :)

Your husband is flying alone to Vegas to attend a baby shower you were both invited to attend. You, however, became bogged down in research for a barcode scanner and have a deadline to meet. Being the loving supportive man he is (he's married to you, isn't he?) he offered to go alone. The shower is after all the wife of his college chum whom you've never met.
Oh, and did I mention golf, gambling and just plain fun?

Miss V, you make my day!

Your husband is an inventor, and created his own baby showering machine. He's going to a showering convention in Vegas to show off his new invention!

Never used the bar code thingie, so I'm no help there.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope your daughter enjoys Imagination Cafe!

Your husband is flying alone to Vegas to attend a baby shower as punishment for previous indiscretions in the City of Sin. You're a ruthless woman, Miss V :-)

Sorry I can't help with the barcode scanner...

He's in love with another man. "Baby shower" is code for manlove. And "Vegas" is code for secret hotel.

MissV said...

OMG, I love you guys! These are soooo awesome, I can't tell you how hard I'm laughing over here! You're going to mightily disappointed in the *real* answer, but keep the fun coming!

MissV said...

Shannon, I'm going to tell him you said that! He's going to die laughing. You guys (ahem GALS no men have showed up yet) ROCK

Barcode scanner sounds like a great idea but I have know nothing about them!

And your hubby is going to a baby shower for the one of Tiger Woods's mistresses and he's being paid not to talk about it.

A baby shower in Vegas huh?

A can't help with the barcode scanner either. Sorry.

I'm laughing so hard about your husband going to a baby shower, or any husband going to one, that I can't even think of a creative answer. :D
