I am among the first people to arrive at my job in the mornings. Usually, there are one or two others on my side of the floor when I enter and all the lights are turned on.
Not this morning…
I was the first person in on my side of the floor today. This morning only bright daylight, yay longer days at last(!), and the emergency lights greeted me. It was an eerie sort of quiet and I liked it.
Still, knucklehead that I am all I could think of was:
- it looked like a first-person shooter game where all is quiet before the zombies pop out of nowhere at any moment,
- the chorus to the old Eric Carmen song “All By Myself” and
- clearly I was in serious need of coffee.
My loneliness, and potential active zombie bait imagination, lasted all of maybe seven minutes before the next person arrived, breaking the spell.
