Friday was just like any other day.
I left the house for work around 7:30 in the morning.
I kissed my girlfriend before I left. She was still sleeping in the bed. At 8 months pregnant, she spends a lot of time resting in bed. I got to work at the St. Petersburg AC repair business right at 8:00 a.m. There wasn’t too much traffic on the highway which made me happy. Usually it takes a full half hour to commute to my place of business but there weren’t too many people on the highway Friday morning. I was scheduled to work on a commercial AC repair project. The commercial AC repair project was at a business in the Waterfront district. I was in the middle of the commercial AC repair when I got a phone call. I didn’t answer the phone the first time that it rang, because I didn’t recognize the number. When the same number called back a second time, I decided to answer. It was the hospital in St. Petersburg. My girlfriend was in labor and I had to meet her at the hospital. I contacted my boss and I told him that I had to leave the commercial AC repair as soon as possible. My boss was excited that my girlfriend was going into labor and he told me to leave. He was going to personally come to the commercial business to finish the repair so I didn’t have to worry. Three hours later, my daughter was born. If I would have stayed to finish the repair, I would have missed everything.
