Started Early

For my birthday, my East Coast Aunt recovered a baby book my mom kept until I was 7. It was a fine gift - and a great reminder that my mom was a very caring, diligent mother for many years. Some of the stuff was a surprise (my "society" grandparents gave me, on the day of my birth, a collection of T.S. Eliot poems and an orchid.) some of it predictable (by age six I didn't want to talk about anything that didn't pertain to Star Wars).

But of particular interest was evidence that it all started early:

Childhood Illnesses:

Date: --------- Illness ---------- Treatment

12-21-1977 - Struck by car - Uninjured!


I swear, my mom put in the exclamation mark.

I'm beginning to believe that the fact parts of Unbreakable were filmed near your old apartment isn't such a coincidence.

Are you certain you're not a super hero?

I've had that same suspicion. I want royalties.

Interesting coincidence! Twenty-nine years later - to the day - I myself was struck by a car and emerged unharmed.

Of course, I was in a U-Haul truck at the time...
