“It’s GOTTA BE 5 O’Clock Somewhere…”

October 22, 2009 by Dave  

It’s gotta be five o’clock somewhere.

Yes it’s five o’clock somewhere.  And in our circle of friends, that “somewhere” is the house of whichever mom is hosting the “play date du jour!” Imagine coming home after a long day of work, only to see your wife and a few other moms, barely speaking English, scouring the earth for more champagne while the food is burning, the dog is barking, the smoke alarm is going off, and the kids are running naked. OK I confess – none of these have happened all at once (at least not while I was there) but any of the other dads in our circle will back my statement that each has happened at one time or another.  Fortunately, this mom is not part of our circle.

All kidding aside, I welcome the “escape” for the ladies.  To put it mildly, we have a rather fertile circle of friends.  With 3.2 kids per family, the girls have their hands full all day.  As to whether the guys or girls have it worse during the day, it’s not for me to say (here’s a hint though – it’s us), but I’m sure the moms look forward to this downtime as much as we do after a long day at work.  Not to mention my wife is taking care of 4 kids’ travels to/from school while conducting her full-time “day job.”  And most importantly, whether I walk into our house or a friends’ house, there is ALWAYS a glass of wine waiting for me, which makes it all worthwhile.
