In my world

I realized something about myself today, as I walked into the hospital to see my aunt.

I watched the people around me carefully.

A girl my age. Probably going to see a friend who just had a baby.
A middle-aged couple. Probably going to see their daughter, who just had a baby.
A mom and a child. Probably going to see the child's aunt, who just had a baby.
A man, by himself. Going home. His wife had a baby.

Every person there. I searched their faces. I glanced at what they carried. I made note of what they wore.

At the hospital for a joyous occasion.

As though my aunt was the only patient in the hospital who wasn't there to give birth.

I'm not sure if that is optimistic or just painfully naive.
