I’m In the Delivery Room

I am told by the experts, namely Google et al, that the gestation period for Humpback Whales is 12 to 16 months. For elephants it can be as long as 2 years.

I can’t say exactly when my child was conceived, but I do know that the gestation period for this particular baby was more than 2 years, so the whales and elephants don’t have anything on me. Then when I was ready to deliver there was no delivery room available.

But now all that has changed; there is a delivery room and I have named my latest baby,

The Telephone Killer.

I signed in and was admitted a couple of weeks ago.  The hospital is Second Wind Publishing where Mike Simpson is the chief surgeon.  Tentative release date for taking my baby home is July 15, 2012.

It is a murder mystery. It starts out with this, “At exactly ten o’clock this morning, if everything goes as I have planned, there will be a sizable explosion in the downtown area resulting in considerable property damage and hopefully significant injury and loss of life.”

No one dies in that explosion, but with that telephone call to the television station the killer starts on his killing spree.

I do hope you will visit my baby when It comes home.
