Have you noticed how Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure has been on cable an awful lot lately? Maybe it’s just because it’s too uncomfortable to go outside so I’m watching more TV, but I’m catching it quite frequently. I cringe when Bill S. Preston Esquire’s Dad “goes for it” with his twenty year old wife in his son’s bedroom. I laugh at Wyld Stallyns’ obsession with getting Eddie Van Halen in their nonexistent band. Seemingly the flick has stuck with me since the late eighties.

I was reminded of the sage words of Ted Theodore Logan last night when I felt an odd pressure in my lower abdomen – "Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K." Could it have been the spicy dinner I just consumed? Perhaps it was the incredibly hot walk we took just hours before? There, right there! There it was again. Then I realized…

It’s our most excellent baby saying, “Hi Missy. I mean, Mom. You and Dad be excellent to each other!”


Thanks little dude…er dude-ette. We’ll know on Sunday what you are.
Until then, I leave you with the erudite words of So-Crates. "The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing". This pretty much sums up my entire experience thus far with pregnancy.

Party on San Dimas!

  1. Ha, ha-what a blast from the past! I feel like I learned quite a bit of history from Bill & Ted, God bless 'em. How exciting to know that you're a few days away from finding out if you're blue or pink...can't wait to hear!
