I remember 36 years ago today.

Daddy took Mother to the hospital,
and I went to Grace and Gayle's house.

I was down in their den
watching some TV sitcom when the phone rang.

It was a mod phone,
shaped like a plastic dinner bell that had partially melted.

It sounded funny, too,
like a bird singing in front of a floor fan.

It was for me.

Daddy said I had a new baby brother.
