Best of 2007: Round One, Match Eight (Fire!)  
So I arrive at work, check my email, and then the phone rings. One of my co-workers is calling to find out if the building is on fire. "Ha!" I say, "Of course it isn't!" And then the fire alarm goes off.

Man, I hate our building's fire alarm. I swear I'd rather be on fire than have that piercing sound cutting through my head for the ten minutes it takes to evacuate the building.

Just a little electrical fire on the first floor, but it meant I got to see lots of fire trucks and spend twenty minutes at the bookstore reading Interview magazine. Although I didn't have a chance to read the article about volcanos in National Geographic...

In non-fire-related news, today is the final day of Round One!

I think your co-worker is either psychic or set the fire.

She certainly jumped at the chance to take refuge at the bookstore, so I'm guessing the latter.

Have you considered the possibility that the picture of the redhead with the sunflower started the fire?

Now that's a very real possibility!
