First of all, let me remind you that this whole fruit this is a LENGTH comparison. If there is a cantaloupe on the planet that only weighs 10.6 oz, I wanna see it! SPOILER ALERT: Next week’s comparison is a banana, which you think is MUCH smaller than a cantaloupe, but that’s because you’re thinking weight. And I would much rather think that I have a banana in my uterus than a cantaloupe. It’s only week 20! If there’s a cantaloupe in there now, there’s gonna be a Honda Civic in there by the time week 40 rolls around!
This week is the midway mark of my pregnancy. This summer in my Studio IV class, our professor brought in this board every day that had the number of days we had spent on the project at the top and below it the number of days remaining. Everything seemed manageable when the top number was smaller than the bottom number, but when that top number started creeping up and the days remaining started dwindling away, it felt more and more like a pressure cooker in that room.
Well, from here on out, that’s what’s happening with this pregnancy: that bottom number is just going to keep getting smaller, ticking away the days until the end of this “project.” But this time, I don’t have to complete 8 marker renderings and lots of detail drawings and product spec boards. I’m going to have to squeeze out a human being! Does it suddenly feel like a pressure cooker in here?
