Tomorrow night I’ll be attending my fantasy football draft. That is, if the birth of a child doesn’t get in the way. Not my child, though. Not this time.
Two years ago, about a month before my son was born, I wrote a post comparing my fantasy football draft – the best day of the FF season, by far – and the impending birth of my son. At the time it seemed possible the two dates could conflict, so the post was a (tongue-in-cheek, honey, I swear!) look at which was more important.

Of course, this time someone else’s child might be the monkey in the wrench that spoils the party. Children. What a hassle!
