Excerpt from “Dash – Life Between the Numbers”


The last time I was in a hospital, was the only time I was in one.  Dad, and I suppose Mom, were here with me, doing whatever it is that parents do with their newborn children.  As the story goes, they were certain of two things before I was born.  Number One – that I was going to be a girl, even though they hadn’t seen the results of the ultrasound test beforehand.  They just had a gut feeling.  Number Two – that I was going to be famous.  I guess one out of two isn’t so bad.
