Yesterday --

On my way to the store from the dept, I saw this man standing on the sidewalk in front of Red Ribbon. He was waiting for a cab. He had a cake box with a birthday candle taped on the top of the box. 7 -- it was probably for his son or daughter who was turning 7 that day.

I realized that I wanted that.

I want to see myself, some time in the future, standing on the sidewalk with a cake box waiting to go home.

My cubicle-mate, after seeing a picture of me and my J (our friend, C took the picture at the wedding reception we all attended last Saturday), said "three."

Apparently, that's how many children he sees me and my J having.

"Introduce them to me when they're older."

This made me smile.
