Childbirth classes start tonight. I'm not sure what to expect. It could be filled with new information that I need to know, or it could be yet another rehashing of what we've read half a dozen times already. Misty and I have decided that we'll sneak out if the class is boring or cheezy.
If we end up staying, we're in for a long ordeal. The sessions run each Thursday from 6-9:30 p.m.
This brings about a couple of problems. Most importantly, we're going to miss "The Apprentice" and "Survivor." Luckily, "Apprentice" is re-run Friday nights on CNBC. For "Survivor," I'm having someone tape the show for me (I don't own a VCR). Then tomorrow I have to make sure that my co-workers don't blurt out something about who got voted off/fired. But since I'm al.com's entertainment producer, it's going to be very difficult for me to avoid seeing AP headlines that will reveal the endings (last year, they had a headline to the effect of "Carmella kicks Tony out of house in 'Sopranos' season finale").
In addition to making us miss reality TV, class also runs through when most people would normally eat dinner. If you've spent time around a pregnant woman, you probably know that her appetite is not to be trifled with. They're eating for two, and they need to eat now! I'm assuming there will be a break for dinner, but we'll see. If not, I anticipate pleas for Krystal, Taco Bell, or any other fast food restaurant we drive by on the way home.
