I woke up this morning to rolling thunder as my alarm went off. There’s nothing like lying in bed enjoying the sounds of the rain and thunder and relaxing. Unfortunately, on a Wednesday morning this beautiful combination of rest and relaxation is not possible as my office beckons. Instead, rolling thunder with my alarms on a Wednesday commute means a protracted commute.
I rushed out of bed to get ready knowing that the commute would be hellacious and that I needed to stop and get gas before getting on the turnpike. As I left my neighborhood, my tire pressure came one. The only thing worse than pumping gas in a South Florida thunderstorm is putting air in a tire during a South Florida thunderstorm. Unfortunately, it appears that I have a puncture in my right rear tire. Thank goodness for my knight in shining armor, who met me at the gas station and fixed my tire.
The rest of my commute was slow, scary and laden in rain. While the puncture in my tire could have been a poor omen for the rest of my day, it was not. Building positive relationships and analyzing the business is always invigorating. Plus, any work day that ends with a dinner at Blue Moon Seafood Company is a winner. Sometimes even a day with the roughest start can end up being one of our brightest day.
