Derek's best friend/undercover lover Jorge lives out here on the West Coast and Derek has spent the last 5 days trying to make a plan to see him. They have known each other for about 30 years and have been best friends for the last 15 years. I brought it to Derek's attention on Saturday night when he was making plans for Sunday brunch that Jorge's wife was supposed to HAVE A BABY on that very day and perhaps making breakfast plans was not the most sensitive idea. We could blame this on Jorge, but he would sell his soul to the devil to see Derek so he obviously wasn't giving this too much thought.
Sure enough, Jorge calls on Sunday morning to say that his wife is having contractions so she doesn't feel like going to breakfast.
NO SHIT, SHERLOCK.
We go off to the barbeque and proceed to leave the cell in the car, unattended.
When I went out to the car at 4, I found 2 messages. The first was from Jorge at 10:47 a.m., saying that his wife's contractions had stopped and could we make a new plan? The second was a picture of his baby, sent at 2:40 p.m.
Why men continue to surprise me is beyond me.
