|Gospel has a new name.|
|Higher profile than daddy showers.|
Contrary to my view of the Daddy Shower as fiction, Mrs. Blackwell told me that they indeed exist. However, after conferring with some fathers, none I talked to had ever heard of such a thing. In my wife's version, this thing goes a little something like this:
a bunch of dudes get together at a bar, in a house, wherever there is a roof and electricity, and they bring diapers and beer. So, it's like most nights out with the guys with the exception that there are diapers there - then again, perhaps your nights out with the guys already included diapers.
That said, most guys are instinctively put off by the idea of getting together with a bunch of other guys and immersing themselves in conversations of fatherhood. But, take serious topics out of the discussion, add in Monday Night Football, and we're there. It's a total meathead approach, I agree, but I'm no better. There will be no Daddy Shower happening for me. It's just another curiosity I'm seeing for the first time and an instance where it's actually justified to make a big deal out of something important. Kind of like a football game.
