EPISODE #21: The Numbers

These are my friends Jamie and Kirsten.

Their baby, Jack, was born almost a month early.

Kirsten has taught me that having a baby can make you behave like a person who is not you—who is the *opposite* of you. For her, that meant suddenly and unexpectedly taking on her husband Jamie’s personality. And becoming mind-numbingly obsessed with numbers. To the decimal point.

This is the antique scale that set the whole ordeal in motion.

In this episode, the woman who gave me the title The Longest Shortest Time talks about her own longest shortest time.
