Perspective

A close friend called me from Iraq today. I excused myself, picked up the phone and said "I'm so sorry, can I call you back, I'm in a meeting?" I heard on the other end, "sure, of course" and I replied quickly "I'll call you back, take care."

I called back an hour or so later. When the phone picked up I got, "I'm so sorry, can I call you back? A bomb just went off very nearby."

Business meetings instantly become trivial...
