Did I mention that I'm famous? Has that particular horse been beaten to death? I was basically a glorified call in listener, but hearing Leonard Lopate say my name was pretty rad. I was mostly happy that I didn't turn the dial to 11. I'm not known for having a small personality, which is evident to anyone who's seen my Cash Cab episode...
Matt took over baby duty so I could go out and play with my grownup friends on Saturday night. It's so nice to sit in a cheap, overcrowded restaurant and eat thai food and yap like a real New Yorker. I've known my friend Dan for... flying jeebus, 21 years? Longer? It feels impressive. Because our (mumbles year into sleeve) high school reunion is coming up, we started talking aging. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that for people who are edging up on 40, we look pretty good. I'm not delusional - the word "nubile" will never again come into play - but I don't think we seem very-nearly-middle-aged.
Dan didn't seem to agree.
Do you feel your age? Think you look it? Any major plans to thwart Mother Nature? Having given birth to an octuplet-sized baby, I battle my muffin top daily. That said, yesterday morning I was sitting at the computer when Baby Boy toddled up, laid his head on my belly pooch, then gave it a big kiss.
That, friends, is love.
