Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

A Kind of Mythic Quality

with 3 comments

 

Some of us have internal calendars.  We can remember particular days with ease because they are marked with events of special, and even tragic, significance.  We can recall the birthdays of friends and family, but even more so if one happens to fall eleven days into September. 

 

A friend of mine from college has such a story.  He has two boys, each born exactly one year apart—9/11/03 and 9/11/04.  And this year, September 11 has added one more event into this strange, mythic tendency within my small world…

 

It will always be the day that I learned my wife was pregnant.

    Congrats. If he’s a boy, you should name him after your favorite author: Dan Brown.

    If a girl, you should name him after your favorite wussy writer: Dan Brown.

  3. Ignore CalvinDude, please don’t name my grandchild Dan Brown (boy or girl). Did you remember that (not to be a downer) that 9/11 was also John and Heather’s anniversary date? Maybe this good news is meant to replace the loss of that news.
