i should really get on that

So today I left Boston at 10:15am to attend my oldest friend's surprise baby shower. I figured since it started at 2:00 in the afternoon that it would give me plenty of time. Clearly my brain isn't functioning so well after two solid days of binge drinking. Obviously there was traffic, and of course it rained for the last 70 miles. Poured, actually. Quel surprise. Right, so the shower was set to start at 2:00 and I walked in the door to my house at 1:35 and I had to change, grab the present, pick up a card and drive to the restaurant. Turns out I walked in about five minutes AFTER her. I would have felt like a huge jackass if I'd walked in at the same time as her because I live in Boston there would have been no way to explain me being there. So I walked in and was all "heeyyyy I drove 210 miles to be here and I smell like a brewery. YAAAY FOR THE BABY!". She was really surprised and even though I am on practically no sleep, have had more booze than food in the last 48 hours, and am exhausted I'm glad I made the trip.

The whole "child about to be brought into the world" thing reminded me of a story (doesn't everything?). One day, a casual friend asked me if I was ever planning on having kids. Unsure exactly of where the conversation was going I replied that yes, I would like to have kids one day. She then proceeded to tell me that with every menstrual cycle I was "wasting good eggs,". She then added that because I was already almost 30 (uh hi, I turned 25 in February) that I should look into freezing my eggs. If I'd been a cartoon character, my jaw would have been on the ground and my eyes would have been bulging out of my head. I would like to think that normally I have a pretty quick wit but I was so taken aback that I was left with no comment whatsoever.

I once asked TUR(d) "Seriously? Is this real life?" and she replied "Real life? No. Your life? Yes."

That about sums if up folks.

That's so ridiculous! I'm almost 26, and in no way old enough to "freeze my eggs". Did you bitch slap her? Wow......I'm super offended for you!
