34 Down, 6 To Go
Over the weekend we took Casey to the Santa Barbara Zoo and did a lot of walking. Toward the end of our visit, I was headed solo to the restroom when I heard a woman audibly gasp. Since I was minding my own business, it took me a second to look up and realize she was gasping at me. I smiled and she said sadly "How much longer?" and I told her a little over a month and she simply sighed "Good luck." It was both comedic and also kind of made me feel like shit. I'm pretty big I guess but I don't necessarily want to inspire sadness or terror in people as I walk past them. Weekend after next we're doing this little Legoland "Marathon" where we'll walk a mile through the park and I hope I don't upset people by participating. A girlfriend of mine is hopeful I give birth there and that Legoland will be inspired to give me a lifelong pass and/or a crib made of Legos. Here's to hoping.
