28 years ago today I was born in the hallway of the Herman Hospital in Houston, TX at 5:41am. All the rooms at the hospital were occupied so they parked my mother on a stretcher in the hallway of the maternity ward. Her water broke all over the floor and a nearby janitor said to her, "You need some help, don't you?"
Minutes later my mother reached down and felt my little head emerging... I came out, stood up and said, "I'm here and I'm FABULOUS!!" Still wet with birthing slime, I put on some little tap shoes and danced along to an Earth Wind and Fire song that had been stuck in my head since conception. The end.
Authors note: I was not named Hollie because I was born in the hallway.
So what am I going to do today on this glorious Hollieday? ::sigh::
