My sister, Nikki, hosted a baby shower for a good friend of the family, Chris. Nikki had gone to school with Chris since they were in elementary school. Chris and I had a few classes together in junior high.
My wife informed me that I was asked to join the festivities. As a guy, I didn't think I was supposed to be in attendance, but then discovered that Chris himself would be there. I was initially reluctant, but I wasn't going to let Chris suffer through it alone.
