    You know you got your priorities all screwed up when....

    You are trying to figure out how to be at your nieces first baby shower at the same time you are supposed to be at a car show, showing your car, two hours away.

    Car show starts at 10, baby shower starts at noon.

    This is the one coming Oct 10th. Got the sways put on, finally tested them. Was planning on either coilovers or springs before the show. And custom hand painted accents...

    The one in your back yard is 8 hours from me. Will find out today if I'm still going. Got a spare bedroom?

    Aren't baby showers universally, you know, lame as hell?

    Car shows. Aren't they, you know, pretty kick ass?

    How is this even up to question?

    My daughter's in the ICU and I'm trying to figure out a way to get in a bike ride tomorrow. So I guess you'd consider my priorities screwed up?

    Ride to the hospital? Get some lights and ride after visiting hours?

    You know you've got your priorities screwed up when...

    You live in a run-down mobile home, you barely are able to afford food, your taste in interior decorating is beer bottle labels pasted to the walls, but you can always afford to equip the place with state-of-the-art cable TV and satelite that's always in perfect condition.

    Now that is really screwed up

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Endorphines are required during times of stress.

    Not a bad idea but "post-ride sweaty" is not the way I want to visit her.

    Heading down there now for the evening.

    Go to the car show. You're niece is sure to squirt out another baby later on. You can go to the shower then.

    Unless there is another car show, of course.

    Me, I woulda pitched a large vendors tent at the car show and let your niece have her babyshower there. Then you can have the best of both worlds. Have a large tip jar for the mother-to-be. It's a win win!
    I love pho long time.

    Squirt out is definitely not something I've heard referring to having a baby. I shall now start using this, thank you.

    Having had a baby, I can truthfully attest that they do not "squirt" out. 31 hours of labor, thank you very much.

    Go to the car show at 10 with the intention of only staying for a few minutes and then driving to your niece's shower. Absentmindedly lose your car keys. Call your niece and tell her the bad news. Make the best of things and enjoy the car show. At the end of the car show, find your car keys. Oh, how ironic, they were right there the whole time.
