Well, it's not a new member intro or a "hey, I got a new car" intro, but I felt obligated to post that I was given the distinct honor of introducing my daughter, Colette, into the world at 4:45 this morning. ...in the passenger seat of our E320 on the shoulder of eastbound I-40.
We were on our way to Chapel Hill and my wife hit the hazard switch and handed me the phone and said "You're talking to 9-1-1, pull over, she's coming out." A state trooper arrived 2-3 minutes later and held a flashlight while I delivered and then helped wrap her up while we waited for the ambulance.
All in all, I was on the phone with 9-1-1 for 12 minutes. It was a rush like no other.
Anyway, point is, I got to deliver my daughter in the passenger seat of a Mercedes and that's damn cool.
