For more than 24 hours, I kept my morbid curiosity at bay.
Had I seen her on New Year’s Day 2009? Was she one of them?
You have projects. Projects need planning. Plans need completing.
Was she among them? Was she among the many, many people who helped give the Things the time of their life that week?
I hit the “On” button anyway.
What is it that compels us to want to confirm these things? Why do we need to feel these faint connections that never really were there at all?
Human nature. Good, bad, ugly. Unexplainable. Sometimes you need to know, even if knowing means nothing.

That was an amazing week. From dawn to dusk to dawn again. Seven times in a row. The Make-a-Wish people had given us, especially Thing 1, an incredibly special treat.

At Disney World.
At Universal Studios.
And at SeaWorld.

this woman …
is this woman …
is this woman.
I don’t know how to feel.
