BEEPÖBEEPÖBEEP!! Five thirty in the morning. Time to ďmake the donutsĒ so to speak. I need a day off. Time for a hot shower. I turn the water on and wait for it to warm up, and wait, and wait, and wait. Ugh! The hot water isnít working. A cold shower it is.

Out the door, and on the road. Traffic! Iím going to be so late. I wonder what it is. I hope if it is an accident they are ok. WHAT! No accident itís a bike rider. Get off the highway!!!! I

At work, only one hour late. Iím tired. Is it five yet? Some coffee will hit the spot. Surprise, surprise, no coffee. Checking emails. Great, a mandatory corporate meeting at five. So much for leaving on time today. Blah, blah, blahÖif they are going to make us come to these meetings say something important. What? Five thousand layoffs by the end of the month? Great day to be late.

On the way home. Traffic again. It better not be that bicyclist again. It has been a long day. I pick up the kids. Big hugs! Make dinner, do homework, give baths and into bed. Nine PM, time for me to go to bed.

My head hits the pillow. Ahh! Thatís what I needed. Five thirty comes quickly. Itís been a long, hard day. But my soft, warm bed, beautiful wife and the love of my family makes the day seem like a distant memory.
