This is a test. This is ONLY a test.

It was 7am this morning. I had just arrived to work and already into my normal morning routine; which consist of drinking my nonfat Chai, eating breakfast (Poptart), and sorting through my email. All the sudden the fire alarm began to blare. I’m not being dramatic when I say blare. It was deaf defying loud. I discovered, this morning, the fire alarm for my whole floor is in my cube. Awesome. I knew there was a reason no one wanted this prime real estate cube.

Folks, when the alarm began to blare it scared me so bad that I jumped out of my chair and ran into the hallway. I didn’t know what was going on, but I knew my office is not where I needed to be. After I calmed down, and my coworkers stopped laughing at me. I discovered my building was testing the fire alarms. You would think they would have sent out an email warning everyone of this! Oh, they did that? So, I was the only one that fled their office? My bad.

As I was talking to my coworkers, I noticed both of my hands had a death grip on something. I looked down to see what I had planned to save from the "suppose" fire. I was planning to save my nonfat Chai and Poptart. Yup, that’s OK Chick, saving her food over THE PERFECT PURSE.

I am sure this would have been hilarious on video :)

You never posted pics of the perfect purse, no?

No, Scotty I haven't taken a picture yet. Soon, I'll take one.

I think you took your breakfast with you because they were already in your hands or close to them. and you were scared...it's a good thing you didn't wet yourself.

Your coworkers were mean to laugh at you like that. They should try living with the alarm in their office!

Subconsciencely maybe the perfect purse, is not the perfect purse, since you didn't take it when you thought the building was burning down.

I think you should consult a therapist.
