Friends can be pretty awesome
This isn’t a retail post but it’s one of the nicest things one of my friends has ever done for me.
At the end of 2015 come down with a very serious case of pneumonia. I was so sick, I was one step off landing myself in hospital. I was taking care of myself because my parents happened to be on the other side of the world. Anyway, it was Boxing Day and I was sitting and watching the Boxing Day test match when suddenly I started coughing and choking out of nowhere. I ran for my puffer but I still couldn’t get any air in. My eyes started to go fuzzy and I was getting light headed. I grabbed my phone and dialled the last number I called. It happened to be one of my best friends who lived about a three minute drive away from me. She heard me coughing and realised something was wrong. I remember hearing her screaming that she was coming.
A minute later I heard a car rip up my driveway. Thankfully by then I had started breathing again, but I was still coughing really bad. My friend did double the speed limit and nearly broke down my door to get to me. She found me laying in my kitchen floor inhaling my puffer. She stayed with me that night to make sure I didn’t die! I’ve never felt so blessed then I did that day.
