All Hangin’ Out

I guess you should be careful what you wish for.
The good news is, our “Big Brother” campaign continues to show a positive return on investment. It’s pretty clear Hiram knows he’s going to be a big brother and is either resigned and/or moderately proud of this forthcoming title.
The only bad news is that whenever anyone asks him about it, he runs over, whips up my shirt and shows whoever my huge belly. He used to get tricked by the “over-the-belly” panel that was attached to my pants (thereby keeping at least one layer of fabric between me and the unassuming stranger). But now he knows access to the belly requires two steps:
1) Shirt up
2) Over-the-belly pants down
I don’t want to give Hiram the impression that his baby brother is anything to be ashamed of. But. My belly. It really is quite large. And pink. And…large.
A small price to pay in exchange for an excited big brother. But just a word of warning, my friends. Don’t ask Hiram about his baby brother unless you want a close-up view.
