my gal pal, let’s call her “c” for anonymity’s sake, is the ultimate party planner. construction themed birthday parties (complete with dirt cupcakes) & winter parties involving an incredible hot chocolate bar, just to describe a few of her past soirees. so, when i requested an unconventional baby shower, she didn’t even bat an eye. instead of making me & all the other guests play “guess mom’s tummy size” or “name that baby food,” we sang our little hearts out. that’s right! we celebrated charlie’s impending arrival into this world at a korean karaoke studio. (i didn’t realize places like this actually existed outside of the movie lost in translation, let alone my own hometown suburbia.) the evening consisted of good friends, good food & lots of songs involving the words baby & girl. for those of you who missed out on the fun, & those of you in attendance that want to re-live the night, here’s a 3 minute & 38 second recap. & i apologize in advance for the quality…. but, the room was dark with a strobe light, which made it hard to video tape. plus, it’ll help protect the identity of the singer’s, even if just a little bit.
