We’re going to forgo the Friday post this week as I am writing this from my phone in our hospital room this evening. Early Thursday morning, after 23 hours since checking in to begin inducing labor, The Wife & I welcomed a lovely 9lb 12 oz daughter into the world – hence forth known as The Baby. She measures 22.25″ in length and thus Pat Summit has been sitting in the waiting room of our maternity ward ever since.

Our world has officially been flipped upside down at this point and the first fallout of that is my Friday column this week. Fear not loyal readers, I am taking all of next week off of work and plan to return to regularly scheduled hilarity shortly. Thank you for you patience.

Have a great weekend.
