I laughed so hard on the phone with Alex last night that at one point I wanted to beg (to whomever) for mercy – but I couldn’t even get any sound out. I sat on my floor, phone attached to my ear, tears streaming down my face – SILENTLY laughing. A silent scream – with occasionaly war-whoops of hysteria. And every time I heard Alex gasping on the other end – it put me to a new level … and I seriously could not stop.
After it died down, Alex announced, in a tone of exhaustion, a little bit of fear, and also flat-out diagnostic analysis: “I laughed so hard that I felt my eye move.”
Alex has more details … although I still cannot say how we got from Sanjaya to breast milk. I was the one who took us there, I know that. And all hell broke loose when I said these fatal words, “Take your nursing bra off ….”
After that, there was laughter. For about 10 minutes. And we both nearly died, and Alex almost lost her eye.
