ten years ago today I was at the hospital. my wife was in induced labor since the previous night because the umbilical cord was found to be wrapped around the baby's head. suffice to say it was a scary moment- specially for the wife... she was a nervous wreck and when she was placed on that metal bed it shook like crazy. she was wheeled in around 10:00 am and I waited outside with a couple of good friends who stayed with me. at exactly 1:09pm we had our first child. a girl. it was definitely a freaking wonderful feeling first time you see your first child. every cynicism, every uncertainty you feel, every doubt you might have are all forgotten that moment and you can only smile like you've never smiled before. today acidkid #1's ten years old- and the big question that's been bugging everyone is- how could someone so wonderful be related to me?
this is what my sales meetings look like. in case it is difficult to interperet - this is 25 people on a moving bus, with a case of rum, a cooler of ice, some fruit juice and a 3 piece salsa band driving around town all night.
