Interrupted musings on a perfect day.

Yesterday I took the Katt for a walk.  It was a perfect fall day, probably the last nice day of the year.  It made me think…how many idyllic days are left in my life?  1000? 100?  My body was pain-free, stress-free, and I was doing something I love, with someone I love.

Yeah, so while I was thinking about all that, Katt fell asleep.  No easy task, considering how jacked up the sidewalks are in my neighborhood.  Just then a young Yinzer woman stopped me and asked if I was pushing a real baby.  Uh-huh.  Because grown men everywhere are known to push dolls in strollers.

I bought that “jogging stroller” on Craigslist.  And in doing so, I inadvertently became a Craigslist character.  Perhaps I will tell you about that tomorrow.

  1. I looked up Yinzer in Google, who translated it as a corruption of you-uns, a Pittsburghese that your Mom used to employ. So that mystery was solved for me.

    On the second subject, Craigslist, I used to use it quite a bit ’til some car thieves in California stole my Craigslist identity. After that, it has been rather difficult to use.

    Unlike myself, I trust you’re happy with the election.

    Much love to you and yours, from your Dad.

  2. Did the Yinzer woman say anything when you said that yes, the baby is a real baby?

    Indeed…she couldn’t get enough of Katt…perhaps she had never seen a half Asian baby before? As others have pointed out, they’re fairly rare in Pgh. Many thx for the inspiration to start writing again…
