    On sinko day mayo I was sittin' at the Sandford's Cajun Kitchen bar in Casper, WY, eatin' a horrid Fajita Salad. I noticed a young couple with an crying infant sittin' in the booth nearby. Both looked to be in their early 20's. The guy had sleeves of tats and piercings, but during the infant's occasional wailing fit, he would rock it, or pick it up. Baybeymomma would do the same thing.

    Anyway, I recalled having gone through the same Trials X 3 with my kids.

    So, after I paid the check, I just walked up to the couple, and said,

    "Excuse me, I hope I'm not intruding, but I've done what your doing now THREE TIMES, and I'd always appreciate it when a stranger would tell me I was doin' a good job: You're Doin' a good job here."

    The guy said, "I appreciate it."

    The girl lit-up with a beaming smile at the guy.


    Damn, it felt good not to be them.
