"A little pukey"

I posted this picture of Baz -- an hour old -- on Facebook. One of my favorite writing professors -- a man who just an hour earlier posted about how one of his main New Year's resolutions was to connect with love -- responded that it was "a little pukey."

Could it be seen that way? Sure. Have I seen kid pictures that way in the past? Sure. Have I said that outright? Fuck no. If that's hypocritical, then so are the good manners that keep us from killing each other.

Must suck to be that angry. I remember what it was like and I don't ever want to go back there.

I think this is one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. Congratulations, Allison. Ginny
