Sick Call

Dial tone.

Beep...beep...beep...

Ring....Ring

"W***, Can I help you?"

"Hey John, it's Brian. I'm calling in sick today. My wife and kids have strep throat. I have to stay home to take care of them."

"O.K. "

My guilt kicks in. "John, I'm sorry. I called as soon as I knew I wouldn't be able to make it."

"It's O.K. you can't help it."

"Thanks John, hopefully I'll see you tomorrow."

Click.

Yippee...I've got the day off. Too bad I don't get to laze around. I get to take care of the bambinos and my beautiful wife.
