Friends are having a baby today. I am nervously awaiting a text message that all is well with mama and son.

My phone just beeped. I madly grabbed it to read the message. All that jumped out at me was the first word and a bunch of numbers.

My mind assumed it was the name and time/weight/length etc. That's when the horror dawned on me: LOWES.

Why would they name their son Lowes - especially as it would not at all go with their surname????

Then I actually read the message and, to my relief, discovered it was a message telling me Lowes Mensware is having a one day 20% off sale......

Back to my anxious waiting....

I just breathed a huge sigh of relief.

Now you have to come back and let us know the real name.

Arlen is a much nicer name than Lowes!

You must be relieved!
