Train The New Mom

Cindy invited me to her house to discuss the specifics. She told me I how much she liked my book, Primetime Pregnancy, which I wrote after I gave birth to twins three years ago. I couldn’t help returning the compliment: The woman looked great. I couldn’t even tell she was five months pregnant. Her belly popped out as much as mine does after eating Chinese food. Sexy as ever, Cindy wore delicate strappy sandals and sleek black pants. Her collarbone peered out from a crisp white button-down shirt.

A State of Suspended Animation

A State of Suspended Animation

I was just a kid, and while I don’t know what my older brother thought, I felt a rivalry with my father’s jets. I sensed that he loved more than anything to fly them and that this love had something to do with why he was willing to go to war, whatever war was. And on April Fool’s Day 1969, when two officers appeared at our door, with hats in their hands and sorrow in their faces, I knew that his love of flight had a lot to do with that, too.

He hadn’t been very high when it happened–about 5,000 feet, coming into position to photograph the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Suddenly, without warning, his plane exploded, broke into pieces and spiraled into the jungle. His chase pilot circled overhead, screaming “Eject! Eject!” until antiaircraft fire chased him off.

My father and his navigator could not possibly have survived, it was decided, yet there were no bodies as proof. Their deaths were official, yet hypothetical. In my mind, my father existed in a state of suspended animation, as if he had ejected out of our lives and simply never come down. I spent several years looking up, waiting for him to land. I imagined him picking himself off the ground, miraculously uninjured, his parachute deflating behind him like a botched meringue. When the POWs were released in 1973, I sat by our front door, expecting him to amble through it, reanimated by faith. But of course he never did, and gradually I accepted that he never would.
