Bomb Scare

There was a bomb scare in our building yesterday.


Turns out one should not leave their backpack in the bathroom across from their suite when they go to yoga over lunchtime. 

Turns out the bomb squad gets called in.

Turns out the police and security guards knock on all the suites and question everyone inside them about said backpack; no one knows about the pack because that person is at yoga.

Turns out the building almost was evacuated.

Turns out my peaceful yoga bliss evaporated almost instantly when I returned to work and discovered my backpack was in the lobby surrounded by police and security guards.

Namaste everyone, Namaste.

Hoot, Hoot!!
What a way to get a little attention! Betcha won't be doing that anytime soon again...and I bet your hubby just lowered his head and shook it with a smile.
Hopefully everyone had a little humor in them even though they were doing their job. You just helped out with a drill and that can't be all bad.

I can absolutely appreciate the humor of the situation but would have maybe liked to crawl under my desk yesterday.... Furry Husband laughed so hard he almost fell over and he's wondering when I might write a manifesto....
