Survived the baby shower

It was 3 hours and it is finally over. I sat at a table with my mother, her best friend, my aunt, my sister, my cousin, and my cousin's wife. It was nice to see everyone and just sit and laugh with them. We entertained ourselves both with the stupid shower games and with our own devices. My mother was the target of my cousin's favorite game--let's fill up someone's purse with crap. She wound up with bags of Swedish fish, pens, salt and pepper shakers, etc. It never gets old. The food was terrible but I expected that. The place is infamous for horrible food. I didn't have the cake as I don't eat sweet stuff. Now I'm at our usual hangout having a cocktail. I dropped my husband off here on my way out so I needed to come back here to get him. I'm looking forward to heading home and relaxing later.

Sometimes these social obligations are exhausting.

I really hate showers, they are so boring to me. I send money and let it be at that.

I usually don't like showers or any other parties either.

I love showers and all parties, but only if the company is good, including the food.

The company was good but the food was awful. I knew that it would be going in so at least I was prepared to be horrified by it.

@NJChicaa The last baby shower I went to was for my future DIL's sister. The food was so good that we decided to have a brunch there the day after our son's wedding. Yes, food matters!

@NJChicaa They are boring, stupid, and it's torture for me to go.
