Six months ago, my wife gave me the best gift I’ve ever gotten, and that includes the year I got two Back to the Future DVD Box Sets. Today, Mabel celebrated her 1/2 year birthday by contracting mommy’s fever and crying uncontrollably all day except for the hour we were at the doctor’s office. “I swear it was just making the noise on the way here. Try startin’ her up again, doc.” Apparently, a 102.5 fever is uncomfortable but it’s not the end of the world.
I was fortunate enough to gather together enough moments of clarity to write an 8-minute performance and got work-release to be able to perform it back in September. When you get a minute (actually, when you get 8 of them), check out “Honey, It’s Time” and live through the panicked fumblings of having to pack a go-bag in 25 seconds, manage an argument between Google Maps and Tomtom and witness the hospital staff perplexed by the most complicated cervix ever. I knew that last part would get you.
