13,870 Days Later

It was 38 years ago today that I became the largest baby ever born at Ft. Lee Army Hospital in Virginia. It was an anecdotal bit of infamy and I doubt the record is still mine. But with my 20th high school reunion on the horizon (and all of the attendant curiosity, doubt, nostalgia, and retroactive insecurity that accompanies it) it's interesting to contemplate- irrespective of time passed- just how little we can ever really know ourselves. Or each other.

Where would the fun be, otherwise?
