When Eli was first born, he...well...looked like George Bush. Now, since we live in Evanston Diana and I are required to be liberals. It's weird, they make you sign a liberal loyalty oath when you get your mortgage. It's the same thing they do in Jacksonville but with Republicans.
At first, we were a little concerned. We imagined walking around Liberal City USA with a mini George Bush. Old hippie women would peer into his stroller, "Oh my, look at the little darling...AAARRGH," and recoil in terror. He'd be shunned by the little patchouli stinking children in the neighborhood. Whole Foods would refuse to serve him.
But gradually over the last 9 days, he stopped looking like our current president.
And I gotta tell you, I kind of miss mini George. I had fantasies of him being a paid tiny George Bush impersonator. He would dress him up in a littel grey suit and we could get his cousin Finn to pretend to be his mini Secret Service agent. We could rent him out to car washes and mini mall openings.
But alas. We'll just have to make due with our cutest, non George Bush, baby.
