Dear Garrison, We loved having

February 12, 2004 |

Dear Garrison,
We loved having you in our hometown of Hot Springs! I am nine months pregnant, and of course the whole family was taking bets that he would be born before or during the show, but we made it through. I'm having a boy (Kian is his name) and he loved the music and excitement of it all, my belly danced around when the crowd clapped for the Powdermilk Biscuits. The entire show he kicked and wiggled around.

—Anne

Dear Anne,
God bless the child and you and we're honored that you came to the show. I assume you've had a moderately easy pregnancy, or you're just awfully brave. When our little girl came along in December of 1997 we weren't going to any shows, we didn't even put up a Christmas tree. We just sat in a New York apartment and had a lovely and secluded week or two before the alarm went off. Awfully cool of you to gallivant around in your condition. Send a picture of Kian when he shows up. Tell Mr. Anne to get out his stopwatch and practice coaching you to take deep cleansing breaths and to remember that he is a crucial member of the birth team. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Oh, forgive me for laughing.
