It woke me up like never before, I wanted a cup of coffee, I wanted it now, I waddled into the kitchen, drank yesterday's coffee, yuck. It was gross but it was warm and I wanted it bad. Then I realized I had to pee, so I took that sludge with me.
That was how my day began twenty five years ago, I know it so well because on this day my Son was born. It was a very, very hot humid summer and I was uuber pregnant. I was also hungry. I was always hungry and I had agita, I had agita for nine months. I walked around with a 32 ounce bottle of Maalox in my handbag or it was in my hand. Everyone said that the Baby would have curly hair, and yes. he did and does.
While I remember everything up until they knocked me out. I woke to find we had a boy, and I was in love all over again.
It was a Sunday.
