Save the children

It’s no secret that I’m claustrophobic.

There are security guards at the St. Louis Arch who probably still talk about the girl who hyperventilated all the way up the elevator to the top (and wouldn’t go back down…for two hours).

I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

I, on the other hand, am gasping for air just looking at those poor kids.  Don’t they know their oxygen is running out?

Wheeze. Cough.

Sputter.

Non sequitur

Look at who Rory and I encountered during our lunch walk yesterday in the neighborhood:

“Three Nuns and a Baby”

I can’t think of the last time I have seen a nun in a formal habit.  (Conversely, I see babies being pushed in strollers all the time.)

It reminded me of that 1987 movie Three Men and a Baby — remember it?

Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Steve Guttenberg played roommates in New York City. While Ted Danson’s character is out of the country,  an old girlfriend leaves a baby at their door that she says is his, and the other two guys are forced to take care of her.

At first, the baby totally disrupts their lives, blah blah blah, but by the time the mother returns to take her back, all three men are in love with her.   She and Ted end up getting back together, and they are one big happy family.

It was kinda cute, as I recall.

Bet the nun version would be way funnier.
