Gender reveal parties have gotten more popular and elaborate in recent years. Excited parents-to-be have found increasingly creative ways to announce if they're having a baby boy or girl. Unfortunately, the color-coordinated pyrotechnics, glitter bombs, and smoke bombs have caused some distress to the unsuspecting bystanders caught in their crossfire. Reddit user u/Electric-Cookie-17 was simply dining out with her husband when she (and her food) were unexpectedly bombed with pink "it's a girl" glitter.
I, (44f) was at a restaurant with my husband, (50m) I noticed a couple of people, a man, and a pregnant woman, sit down next to us and I could hear them rambling excitedly about the woman’s pregnancy.
A couple of minutes later an older lady, who I assumed to be the woman’s mother, came in and sat down too. The soon-to-be-mother announced that they had found out the gender of the baby.
