Bless his heart; William tried so hard
to make this baby shower a surprise for me. But I am a suspicious
creature by nature and I suspected something was up.
Here’s how the story unfolds…Even thought the shower was planned for
August 05, 2007, Carolyn told me that they were going to have it on
August 12, 2007. William then told me that Carolyn had sent out the
invitations with the wrong date (which she actually did). So when
people started slipping and talking about the actual date of the party,
I didn’t suspect much. It wasn’t until William asked me what I would
wear to go out to the movies with his mom and aunts on August 5th that
I started to get suspicious. William never cares about what I wear.
Even more suspicious was that William actually suggested that I could
buy a new outfit to wear to my August 12th baby shower. If you know
William, you’ll know that he is never one who would allow me to make
any frivolous purchases without making me talk and think about it. So I
was completely taken aback by his suggestion. Other comments were made
on the day of the shower that aroused my curiosity but for every slip
there was a flawless cover up. Therefore I was never sure what was
In the end though, it worked out well, because I was definitely
surprised. I am really happy and thankful to my family for going
through all this trouble for me.
