We laid on our backs in the grass, and watched the clouds whirl by overhead. L pointed out an airplane passing by way up in the sky, beyond the clouds, but my blind ass couldn't see it. Then I sat and watched two girls swinging on the nearby swing set. I watched the cutest little boy toddle down a hill with his overweight dog. He was wearing mini-sized basketball shorts, and a matching tank top. I felt my stomach flip a little. It's getting harder and harder these days to pretend like I haven't caught the baby fever that's going around.
I think I am ready. It's an awkward, and sometimes scary place to be.
