31. A Good Day to Dodge a Bullet
I was walking up the stairs to our office suite when Mick raced past. She waited for me at the landing. When I caught up to her, she practically knocked me down the steps hugging me. I thought I heard something in my spine crack. Her doctor had run some tests. They had all come back negative. So far, the baby was fine. She raced off to tell Miss Rella. Before she found out she was pregnant, Mick had done some serious drinking and drugging. I knew she had a long way to go, but so far, so good.
I thought about all bullets I had dodged, how many times things turned out well, despite my drunken efforts to ruin the day.
Today I will be grateful for good days and bullets dodged.
