So… what’s new with you guys? Not much going on here with me. Just the usual…
Oh, well, there’s one thing â€”Â I did have a baby this week, so I guess that’s news.
Delaney Hyla Anders was born Thursday morning at 1:24, and weighed in at a totally unremarkable 7lbs 5oz. If you remember, I had a hunch that she would show up before her scheduled delivery date. She was supposed to be born May 26, but instead showed up a week early. Which was fine with me… I was sick of being pregnant anyway. So now we’re in a mad scramble to finish up all those last minute things we thought we could put off for another week. We just ordered a carseat Thursday morning and had it overnighted to us. My husband just picked up our crib this morning, and it’s sitting in Delaney’s room, still in the box.
Anyway, now I am not only a Skepchick, but I have also created a skepchick. And it’s my job to raise her to be brilliant and funny and to question everything around her. And the skeptic community will be looking on as I do it. And I’ll be live tweeting it the whole time… or until no one uses Twitter anymore.
What would you put in that capsule for my future Skepchick? What advice would you give to her? When should she open it? What do you think the next generation of skeptics needs to know? What should Delaney do to save the world from pseudoscience?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET.
