This is how I woke up, at about 5 am (I didn’t stay up until midnight last night – I was in bed by ten).
Cell Phone Rings. It’s across the house. By the time I get to it, it stops ringing. Fumble looking for the caller-id, but can’t, and head back to the bedroom. Home phone rings.
“This is ‘Larry’ from San Antonio EMS…”
And I won’t go into details. Everyone is fine. No broken bones, and many people have received such calls that ended up being much worse. I’m lucky. I spent 6 hours in the ER, but everyone is fine. Some lessons to be learned, for sure. But nobody hurt, and nobody with any future court dates.
So I started 2007 with a scare, but I am lucky.
