I was passing on some baby things to a friend who works downtown and lives in the suburbs. We’d hatched a plan to have Ed meet her with the stuff at lunch so she could bring it home after work. He took one look at the giant, heavy bags and said there was no way a pregnant woman could carry that stuff home on the subway. He was probably right.
But I decided to snap a picture of the bags and send it to my friend to see what she thought. I didn’t seem to have her phone number in my contact list, so I thought I’d send it as a private Facebook message. That didn’t work out very well and it posted to my wall instead. Oh well, I thought, I’ll just listen to Ed and drive out to see her soon. Nobody’s going to notice a picture of a couple bags on my wall. And then this happened.
And then this happened! A satirical tabloid-style news report on the incident by the hilarious Sean Kelly Keenan:
Dying. I’m still dying.
