Trust me, it was funny when I wrote it.

We now return you to your regular program - to which I will add this. When my grandfather was born, they thought he was going to be twins, he was 14lbs.

When my father was born, he was 2 pounds, 2 ounces. Four months premature, born at home, with a midwife instead of a doctor (this was 1922 Appalachia; they didn't even have running water or electricity). It's hardly a surprise he ended up with CP.

The only other interesting birthing story was when my father's mother was born. This was 1897, and again, she was born at home. The midwife attending the birthing? Her cousin, "Granny" Hatfield. Yes, THOSE Hatfields; she was the matriarch of the family, mother of Devil Anse Hatfield.

Especially as it's going to need to expand by about 20,000 words. Maybe this story is fated to be a novella and I should accept that.

After that, I have rewrites that I need to do on my other novel in progress, Partings and Greetings. And would like to write some more short stories, but finding that difficult too.

Things are moving VERY slowly, as I'm struggling with a sense that all I'm doing is writing stuff that no-one wants to read, let alone publish, and I can't even sell short stories at the moment (and that comes from someone who has sold forty of them over the years). I had a rejection the other day from an anthology I was invited to submit to. Well, those are the breaks, but IT DID NOT HELP. *headdesk*
Bummer. But not dire. And we need to cowrite. You owe me an email I think

Embarrassing event for the day.

1:40 pm, I decide I want a can of that sweet crap called canned coffee that they sell here. So I stroll down the hall to the vending machine. On my way I pass a classroom with no teacher in it. The students stare at me as I pass. I wonder where there teacher is. I didn't remember anyone making emergency copies in the teacher's room.

I buy my coffee and am strolling back, they are staring at me again. I poke my head in the door and ask where there teacher is. They tell me I am the teacher. I was supposed to be teaching their class.

Sheesh. I hate when they change the schedule on me. I had three classes in the morning that I wasn't scheduled for, this one is a regular. I forgot my regular, but remembered the special. How does that work?

Luckily (or unluckily), my brother's wife had the baby via cesarean. She's supposed to go home Friday, I think. That seems really fast for having a c-section done, but I guess they toss you out asap anymore.

When one of our neighbours had her youngest via c-section she was in and out of the hospital in about eight hours.

You couldn't pay me to do a c-section. I've heard recovery sucks.

Yeah I wouldn't want one. I don't think she had much choice in it, she had the first one that way too.

*snickers* You're awesome!

I'm not surprised at that, actually... My 5x great grandfather was killed because of his Civil War sympathies. (He's as far as I can trace back my family tree on my dad's dad's side.) Serious stuff! Aunt Betty Lou was a cousin of some description, I think. Lovely lady, but boy could she cuss! She passed when I was 11 or 12 and I only met her a couple of times, but I sure do remember her swearing! heh

Nothing that cool in my immediate family. Unless you count my great great uncle. He survived the Civil War, then was killed in a whorehouse brawl.

So, voice is fading after only reading 12k of WIP aloud. Must find some tea or something. Also might help to keep in mind that I'm not in a play, and an excessively passionate reading is not strictly necessary. Nor do the cats care if I'm projecting properly.

My voice coach in college used to keep a bottle of Jack Daniels, mixed liberally with honey, on top of the radiator in his office. Warm toddy for when your voice was rough.
