Tick Tock

April 10, 2006


Well, another prenatal check up taken care of today! And this one came with… a birth date.

(Ever the future-focused, and thanks to The Swimmy’s birth, I am having a scheduled c-section — for those of you not playing the Wiggly Home Game.)

And so, I now have the date our life (and house!) will be turned upside down: July 26th. That seems close. Kinda “woah” close. But once the summer heat kicks in (any damn day now), it’ll seem like FOREVER.

Here are some things that happened on July 26th in history:

  • The FBI was formed
  • Joe Dimaggio ends 61 game hitting streak in Pacific Coast League
  • Churchill resigns as Britain’s PM
  • Mickey Mantle hits career home run #200
  • Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa convicted of fraud & conspiracy
  • Apollo 15 launched to the Moon
  • General Hospital tapes its 7,000th episode
  • Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) is arrested in Florida, for exposing himself at an adult movie theater
  • Also born on this day:

  • Mick Jagger
  • Aldus (Leonard) Huxley
  • Carl Jung
  • Stanley Kubrick
  • George Bernard Shaw
  • Kevin Spacey
  • So, uh, it’s a day filled with espionage, sports milestones, entertainment, really strange books and movies and soap opera history.

    Yep. That’s about right for this house.

      I think I first got laid on July 26!
      Or was it June? Or November? Or maybe it was the 16th.
      Or maybe I didn’t get laid and it was some other fantastic thing that happened on Seven Twenty-six.
      Happy B-Day, Wiggley!
