Elsa: Aldo and Isaac have birthdays a day apart. Isaac was born on January 13, 1977, and Aldo was born on January 14, 1977, in the same hospital, Boston Lying-In Hospital, that no longer exists. Almost every year we go through the ritual of trying to figure out if Aldo's mom, Carol Moses, and I were in the hospital at the same time. Isaac was born at 4:19 am on the 13th, and because Harvey kept on looking for a men's room in the hospital in his pajamas, we were scuttled out of the hospital mid-day on the 14th, and Aldo was born that night. There were huge snowstorms on the 13th and the 14th. Fast-forward ... because Isaac and Aldo had birthdays at the same time, we developed the ritual of taking birthday pictures every year, and Eugene was always in them. From time to time the circle expanded.
