My Trip to the Ob/Gyn

So, you know, Mrs. ETJB is way pregnant. Like 37 weeks. That means any ole day now. Last week we went to her Dr. to discuss our birthing plan: what to look for, when to show up, who will get the drugs, that sort of stuff.

Anyway, in the waiting room, I looked for some reading to satisfy my feminine side. I did a double take at the magazine table:

Virgin Living??? Thoughts shot thru my head: I mean, has our specialized, one-to-one society come to this? Do we really need to make virginity a coffee-table topic? Can't you just get laid and forget about it?

I picked it up.
Virginia Living.

Sighting (Second Hand): Honest Bob Schieffer

Loyal reader from Colorado was in Manhattan last week and had a brush with fame. He writes:
Had a sighting of my own last week in New York. CBS News stand-in anchor Bob Schieffer sitting with three extremely attractive college age girls eating ribs and drinking beer at Blue Smoke on E. 26th.
So does Bob like them wet or with a dry rub?

Sighting: Mary Landrieu

Saturday, 10/15/05, around 1:45 p.m. making an ILLEGAL left turn from M Street onto the Whitehurst Freeway, in front of the Exorcist stairs. She was driving a big ole, beige SUV with Lousianna tags. Ballsy move, with unstrapped kid in back.
That's how I noticed it was her: I was looking to see who drove like that. And it was the Senator!

At 12:15 today, George Stephanopoulos chomping his custom salad outside at High Noon on 19th Street. He was wearing a purple shirt, reading, and dining alone.

In my defense
Considering the current political climate, I have been really pulling for underdogs lately.

A Hallmark Moment

Rodman's is my favorite store in town. One of the best things about where we live is that Rodman's is on the way home. Cheap wine, Powerball, Indian spices, pure soaps, German cookies, kooky medical name it, Rodman's comes thru.

Yes, I realize Rodman's caters to an eclectic, international clientele. But is the free-love, open-marriage market in D.C. so big that they need to carry supportive anniversary cards?
Hey, I'm as open-minded as anyone, but WTF?
