Oh Brother, Where Art Thy Brains?

Dear Brother,

What part of "I'm not keen on doing lunch for several hours when I've just had a baby" did you not fully understand when you booked a table for 8 for next Sunday and assumed that we'd all be there?

I cant actually bring myself to respond politely to his email, so I just wont respond. After yesterday's post describing my day can you really see us sitting peacefully in the restaurant of a dodgy bogan pub for Sunday lunch? Nope. Me neither.

Its bad enough that I feel I HAVE to go and see my parents this week to introduce Spud to them. Hopefully he's still young enough that he'll have no memory of the occasion. Its a fairly safe bet, since he has trouble remembering where he left his hand...

    His stunning lack of understanding and intelligence is truly breathtaking. His email does not deserve to be dignified with a response although I personally would respond curtly.

    "Perhaps you had not heard but I had a baby a little over 3 weeks ago. I am sure you can understand it is not possible for me to join you on this occasion."

    I feel your frustration, Panda. :-(

  2. Another option that might just ruin his carefully planned Sunday Lunch, would be to turn up, with little Spud and let him see for himself, first hand what "doing lunch" with a newborn is like. Good luck with your parents.

  3. pinch Spudly hard on the leg just as you sit down. He'll scream at the top of his lungs and then stop breathing - presto! escape is at hand. heh heh heh

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
