So, I'm going to see "The History (and Mystery) of the Universe", the one-man play about the life and work of Buckminster Fuller, currently in San Francisco at <a href='http://www.artaud.org/theater/'>The Project Artaud Theater</a>. I saw it a couple of years ago before I left The City, and I really liked it.
Anyways, my sister-in-law was due to give birth last Saturday, and we've all been anxious to see her actually pop. I've got the cigarette-at-the-bus-stop theory: as soon as you stop waiting and start doing something else enjoyable, the thing you were waiting for will happen.
On that principle, I got tickets for me, all 3 of my brothers, my sister-in-law, my mom (who loves Fuller) and my dad. Wouldn't you know it: my brother called this afternoon to say that my sister-in-law is having a lot of 'activity' and they think they might be going to the hospital instead of the theater.
I'm so damn good.
