#6 Priorities That Have Nothing to Do With the Baby

"My ex-brother in law actually did this. He was supposed to be holding up my sisters legs (they were numb from the epidural) and he was like "uhh, I'm so hungry. I am going to get some food." Then he dropped her leg, walked out and came back 15 minutes later with french toast. Then the nurse asked him if he wanted to hold the baby and he was like 'I'm eating'."
