No one calls at 2:14 AM.

Let me correct that. No one used to call.

Now, it’s home base … another emergency. With them…there are only emergencies!

Having left extreme sports for a more nine-to-five job (my wife’s idea), we were a happy, somewhat- normal couple (two kids, a gerbil, and three dogs).

I left my passion as a top-five free-climber with seven first assents to my legacy.

Now I was on call to climb communication towers.

Leaning over to kiss her on the cheek, I grab my coat and softly descend the back stairs.

Normal is so overrated!

Written for The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge. Requirements: December 30, 2015 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write an industrious story. It can be about an industry or the efforts of a person or group of people. What does their industry reflect? Does hard work pay off? Are there risks or accidents?
