I had to go in to work early this morning. I remember rolling out of the bed to a shrill phone ringing thinking who could that be? It was my father's co-pharmacist. Dad is out of town.
"The computers are down and we just opened the store!" she told me excitedly. "I can't fill any prescriptions!"
I threw on some clothes and drove down. I noticed how cool it was this morning and it made me smile. Before leaving, I took the time to brew some coffee and it hit the spot today.
When I got to the store, the solution was simple. Somehow, the Internet modem and router had become unplugged. I plugged it in and they were back online in seconds. As usual, it really is usually something that simple when I get these calls.
"I'd pay you, but your father would hate me," Angie said as I was leaving.
"Two cold Coca-Colas will do," I replied understandingly as I smiled.
Those were the best two cokes I have drank in forever. It is the simple pleasures for me these days.
