...Advice to Husbands of Expectant Mothers

Hypothetically, let’s say you are the co-owner of a small technology integration firm. Let’s also say you have a wife who is due to give birth within the month.

One Wednesday afternoon, you find yourself in a meeting with two of your partners and a subcontractor to coordinate schedules and go over jobs that need to be completed before the end of the month. After all vital issues have been discussed, the subcontractor glances at his watch and mentions that it appears to be “Beer-thirty” and suggests a trip to the bar across the street where Happy Hour has just begun.

Just for the sake of argument, let’s also say you forgot your cell phone at home that morning. You consider borrowing one to call your wife to inform her you are out getting sloshed and will likely be home a little late. Then you tell yourself that she probably thinks you’re going to the gym after work anyway. No need to call her with your very minor change in plans.

Moral of the story: There is a reason grocery stores set up those flower aisles
