Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Just so you know...

The Scene: Drek is riding in a car with his wife when his cellphone rings. Drek's mom is calling.

Drek: Hey mom.

Mom: Hi Drek! Okay, so everything is fine here.

Drek: Glad to hear it.

Mom: But your sister's water broke last night at about 2:30. That would be 1:30 your time.

Drek: Hey! Awesome! She's early though, right?

Mom: Yes. She wasn't due until later in March, so she's a little over three weeks early. The doctors say she's fine, she's not having any contractions yet so they may try to induce soon and, if that doesn't work, they may do a c-section.

Drek: Got it. Why the rush?

Mom: Well, after your water breaks you need to get the baby out within a certain period of time.

Drek: Risk of infection?

Mom: Right.

Drek: Okay. You'll keep me updated throughout the day, right?

Mom: Oh, of course! You know, I was saying I didn't think she was going to make it through March. The baby was riding really low. Still, I didn't think it was going to come this early.

Drek: I know you were thinking that and I didn't expect it this soon either.

Mom: Just pray to... well, just pray to whatever you pray to.

Drek: That would be "nothing," but I'll be thinking about Sis a lot today.

Mom: That works. Thoughts work too. We just want a healthy baby and healthy mama.

Drek: Damn right.

Mom: I'll call when we have more.

Drek: Sounds good. Tell Sis I love her!

Mom: Will do! Bye!

Drek: Bye!

UPDATE: After an easy, breezy 21 hours of labor my sister has given birth to a very, very healthy six pound, three ounce baby girl. I am, from now on, Uncle Drek. No doubt out relationship will be magical. And, for those who are curious, a picture:
