JunglePete is pregnant. (Technically, his wife is pregnant).

In the JunglePete due-date pool, I chose two dates, because I live lawless like that.

I chose February 2nd for the irrational reason that it’s my favorite holiday.

I chose February 6th, because that’s the date that seems more probable to me for reasons that aren’t any more scientific than my other selection – I just picked it because I could.

Alas, it turns out that February 6th is the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth.

For the past few nights I’ve had vivid nightmares that Pete and Mela give birth to Ronald Reagan. The baby isn’t just the reincarnation of Reagan, it’s a baby-sized version of 2nd-term Presidential Reagan, complete with cowboy hat.


I’m hereby un-selecting February 6th in the JunglePete baby-pool in the hopes that the dreams will go away.

I’m putting that picture of Ronald Reagan and Bonzo at the top of this post because it makes me laugh. Also because it will annoy Pete, as Bonzo is an ape and Pete has that natural anti-ape bias endemic in most people who were raised by monkeys.

Sharing is caring!
