'A Day In The Life' by Lon Richardson

A woman awakens and realizes, “I’m ready.” 

On the freeway, a man grips the wheel, a pressure in his chest, but there is no one there to speak. 

Two ambulances race to the hospital; one carries a woman in labor, the other a man whose breathing is labored. 

In one room, a doctor eases an infant out of the birth canal; in another, a light traces a straight line across a screen. 

The woman wonders when her husband will arrive. 

Just another day in the life of planet Earth.
