Joel Stein: Solo at the birthing class -- oh baby!!
When my lovely wife, Cassandra, got the worst case of flu of her life, I happily volunteered to go to the second class alone and take notes. It turns out the easiest way to seem like a really good guy is to show up alone at a birthing class. If the other women weren't with their husbands and carrying their babies, I think I could have gotten some.
