Baby Shower Cards

A lady in my department is pregnant. That means that we all chip in to get her a gift and a card is circulated for us to sign. I'm more than willing to chip in for the gift, but the card is a different story. I never know what to write. The people in my office never just sign their names. They always write a little something inside which means that I have to write something inside.

Today a card made its rounds and I was forced to write something. It took me about fifteen minutes to figure out what to write. This is what went through my head as I tried to come up with something to write about her newborn-to-be.
  • Good luck forcing that little baby out of your vagina.
  • Babies are time-consuming.
  • May he be wise and fleet-of-foot.
  • I bet you can't wait to get that hefty little sucker out of there.
  • It's almost breastfeeding time!
  • Are you watching The Bachelorette? I totally think she needs to go with that one guy that's not a d-bag, you know, the guy with the kid that Ellen likes. Don't you? I do. He's the one for her.
I ended up going with the last one.

  1. For weddings, baby showers, funerals, and get well cards, I use the following note:

    "Token sentimental statement."

    Then sign my boss' name.
