Okay, I may have mentioned it before, but our parking deck at work collapsed the Saturday before last (the back section). Thankfully, it was on the weekend and no one was hurt. The worst part for us, which isn't that bad, is that we have to park pretty far from work now. It is about a ten minute walk each direction. I need the exercise and the weather has been nice so, whatever.
This morning, I woke up like a zombie. You know those mornings. For me, I felt like I had ingested an entire bottle of cold medicine and was walking around in a "pretend" world. So, I'm a bit out of it, at least I was. I started my morning jaunt from the parking deck to our building, moving a bit faster than usual so that I wouldn't be late and just as I rounded the corner of our building I got hosed. LITERALLY! The sprinklers turned on and the whole left side of my body was misted with cold water. Not cool! Funny, but not cool. Now, I'm at work in damp clothes and my boss still believes we store meat here. So, thank you to the building management, who failed to adjust the sprinklers or the timers so that people walking on the sidewalk wouldn't get sprayed on their way to work. That aside, thank you for the good laugh.
I hope you all stay warm and dry today! :)
