Seven seven oh seven. The day when seemingly half the dating world decided to tie the knot has passed. July 7th, 2007 was supposed to be a lucky day. Thinking back on my Saturday under the sun, I don’t recall there being much luck. To be honest though, I’m not all that superstitious. As I think back more on my Saturday, it’s apparent luck was not on my side for a fleeting moment.
For instance I stumbled on our front stairs after visting the grocery store. The package of Pepsi cans I cradled crashed to the ground and ripped open. Of course our neighbor just happened to be watching. Score one for me.
I did get a sweet deal on some new boxer briefs Saturday though. A few years ago I asked for feedback about which underwear should be worn. I then purchased a bunch of boxer briefs to give them a test drive as suggested by you, the wonderful blog readers. I trusted you all and the experiment has come full circle as I approve. Boxers just don’t work so well for certain things, but that’s a post for another day.
What was your brush with luck on July 7th? Did something stand out that made you take notice? Is luck just coincidence? I went for a bike ride and didn’t fall off my bike. Does that make me lucky? Hey, if you didn’t receive any luck on the seventh… don’t fret because there’s always August 8th next year. Whoa, Anna could be born on August 8th. Cool beans.
Just when you thought I wouldn’t mention the baby, wrong. I have felt her making some huge movements in my wife’s belly. From what we can tell, she has also “dropped” meaning she’s readying herself even more for her big arrival. My hand jumps off Mrs. Lessinges’ belly with all of her actions inside the womb. We’ve decided we should have a backup boy name just in case. I suggested Bert or Rudolph.
new baby learning: “board books” –> for those not in the know, board books are tiny books meant for new people aged 0-3. A week ago I had no idea what this term meant. Now I’m all about board books, we’ve purchased 8 of them in the past week. I read two books today, I’m so prolific.
