1. Hallucinated 2. Passed out* 3. Gone home with a boy I’d never met before It sounds like I’ve been having wild and salacious times, but in reality, that’s a misleading lead-in to a labor-and-delivery anecdote. On June 28, I was heading down to KU Med for a routine pre-natal appointment, wherein I expected to […]

Ridiculous prognostications

made on behalf of my pending baby by total strangers in public: 1. ┬áIt’s a boy because my face looks “normal,” not puffy. Ah…okay. Thanks, I think.

Yesterday, for an entire day, I wore my trousers backwards. As in Ass-to-the-Front. Unintentionally. I am not now, nor have I ever been a member of Chris-Kross.
