Wet It Was
Yesterday was the wettest day in Tucson -- at the airport, anyway, where they record the official figure -- in 22 years: 2.29 inches of rainfall. As I just explained to Bean, the last time it rained as much as it did yesterday, I was still in high school. "Before you met Mom?" she asked.

"Before you met Mom?" she asked.

Jet has this thing wherein if ever I talk about some time pre-Jim or pre-him and say something like "and I did this", he always says "and me, too". Obvious at this point he can't conceive of existence pre-conception but his reasoning being "well, I was in your belly". Which, given my nature as you know it, I'm always finding myself hard pressed to really answer (and the gods forbid, you know, I just slough off some answer! ;) ), because while he wasn't in my belly, *technically*, on a biological/genetic level, the *potential* for him (or at least my 'half' of him) existed and so...


And so goes my INTP scientific mind when faced with even the smallest random comment. :)

(Unbelievably (for me) I've already had too much coffee by 8:00 a.m., hence the chatty, hardly-even-relevant comments.)

Imagining the time before one existed is hard. My parents regularly showed slides from before I was around, which helped. Skylar has seen pictures from the pre-her phase of our lives, but they tend to trip her out. Too much coffee already? Wow.

To further illuminate baseball longevity, the last time it rained as much as it did here yesterday, Barry Bonds set the ASU record for homeruns in a freshman season and Roger Clemens pitched the Texas to the College World Series.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. I think that reporter was in a class of mine at UA. Not that you necessarily care :)

C--One cornerstone of that longass conversation I had with V earlier this week? What happened after "Why Can't I Be You" showed up dead-center on a mix tape her now-fiance gave her.
