Quickie blog

This morning I got to hear those fleeting words, rarely uttered aloud: you were right.

My day has been made. Unfortunately, "You Were Right" led to a change in plans and now, when I normally blog and drink coffee, I have to head out.

I thought I would share with you (but I don't know why you'd want to be tortured by this too) something I heard on the train back from NYC yesterday. It has been haunting me - both acts, but mostly the first one - all evening, all night and all morning.

A segment of This American Life from April 2009 called Didn't Ask to Be Born. When Ira Glass says it's not appropriate for children, he forgot to mention that it is physically painful for Moms' ears too.

The first act is my worst fear. Could C ever hate me as much as these girls hate their Mom?

I have to listen to something nice all day long today just to get the mental images of these family tragedies out of my head.

Heard this on the clock radio this morning and it had my feet tapping:
