Late Night

I sit in a recliner in our hospital room watching my wife sleep. I can hear my baby's hear on the monitor and watch a machine catch each pulse. I see all the contractions my wife has claimed not to feel as it clenches and turns loose. I just played a poker stars tournament and did poorly. I finished 4th in a H.O.R.S.E. tournament. Went out when my opponent caught a third two on sixth street in a stud game. Sometimes it happens that way.

Tomorrow I meet my little girl. For blog purposes, we will call her El Bonita. All other concerns are a long way off. Classes, law review, pending somewhat long term visits from in-laws. All unimportant.

For now, my wife sleeps. Aujourd'hui, le deluge.
