The labour of waiting.

Continued from here

So a few months ago, the hero and I went to see the hospital rooms and facilities at the behest (such a nice, euphemistic term for nagging no?) of the mothers.

So we see some of the rooms, not the really scary ones and eventually wind up in the waiting room where a few expectant fathers are lounging around.

The hero, then comes up with the following

"Hey, you know what? I should get one of those air-mattresses C ( his Brother in law ) has for this room. So I can lie down and rest on it while you are in labour. These plastic chairs look most uncomfortable"

They will never change, will they?

uff these men!
I like that in US they make the guys stay with their women throughout labor. At least they get freaked out as much as the women :D

Iya i remember that one. Though the comparison i give hero is ahem..rather more painful! :D

anon , stefy :)

Shub - he would have had pins stuck in him if he had got the air mattress. But to be fair, he was pretty good when i was actually in the hospital. i think i scared the shit outta him when i was wheeled out.

Gypsy - where would this be? here men are not even allowed inside the labour room.

Nowhere Man - absolutely!

sra - hehe nope.

P - yes, that should be a good scary experience. pity its not allowed in india tho ..
