Yesterday I planned to post a Weekend Update. I had a great weekend. I went to Hometown, USA for Mother's Day, and spent a good amount of the weekend around old friends. You know the friends that make you happy to be alive? Yes, those people. However, I did not get around to writing the post, because yesterday the bottom fell out of the sky.
Folks, it's tornado season around here, which makes me jump for joy. There's just something about tornado season for anyone from around these parts of the woods. It's exciting, yet scary.
Yesterday, I was sitting in a meeting when my office's receptionist came over the intercom announcing that the sh*t has hit the fan, and we all need to hit the floor immediately. Ok, so maybe I'm being a bit dramatic. I believe she simply said to be aware of the weather.
After the announcement my meeting dismissed and I went back to my office. As I was walking down the hallway I found my entire department had jumped ship due to the storm. Now, this annoyed me because my coworkers left me to fight the storm ALONE. I mean come on, don't they know you are not suppose to leave a solider behind. Sure, I'm not a solider, but we're family around here!!!! Well, I guess we are not family around here! But one brave coworker was still working, and informed me that I had 10 minutes to get home before the storm hit my office. I flew out of my office like Starbucks was having a sale on nonfat Chai.
Apparently, everyone heard about the Starbucks sale because all of OKC was out on the roads trying to get home, which caused me not to beat the storm. The highlight of the afternoon was when the hail starting hitting my car, and the tornado sirens went off for about 10 minutes. I just turned up the radio. What? It was a good song, and I've heard the tornado sirens before.
Today's hot guy is my #1 weather guy! Gary England, job well done yesterday. You kept me advised, which kept me alive! I realize people from outside the Oklahoma bubble do not understand my love for this man, but just go with me. If you ever come visit me during tornado season, you'll develop a deep love for him too.
