Lincoln NE (SN) – Believing that he was just stopping by for an ordinary dinner with his girlfriend’s parents, 25 year-old Scott Walton was surprised to find out he was at a gender reveal party to find out the sex of his own child, of which, up to this moment, he did not know existed.
“Uh, what?” cried Walton when he realized what was happening. “Wait, what? Why?”
Walton’s girlfriend 24 year-old Christine Blazek, beamed as she explained she was 5 months pregnant and they were going to find out the sex of the baby at this gathering of all their closest friends and family.
Walton crumpled into a ball and started shaking as Blazek showed him the cute handmade signs she made so they could announce to Facebook that they were expecting.
“It’s a repurposed chalkboard that dad put some old barn wood around for the border. It’s it so adorable. Karen from the flower shop did the chalk lettering. It’s so neat. I love it! We only have 4 months to go!”
Walton, in a catatonic state, was lead by the hand and ushered into the backyard where he would have the honor of breaking open the balloon with Blazek’s nephew’s red wiffle ball bat. The balloon was filled with the corresponding colored powder, pink for a girl, or blue for a boy.
Sadly, Walton came to his senses before the gender could be reveled. As the light of understanding returned to his eyes, he screamed, hit his girlfriend’s father in the head with the wiffle ball bat, ran out of the backyard and got into his car. He peeled out and was not heard from again.
In all the commotion the balloon broke apart on the grass, revealing a blue powder. Turns out it is going to be a boy. Congratulations!
