The Big Smoke Out

We all had a "smoke break" today at work, when the building was evacuated as a mysterious smell of smoke permeated the first floor. It smelled like plastic burning, or maybe oil. I was in a meeting when someone walked in to hand over my friend Peggy's dog Amber, and in a hushed tone, casually mentions that they were evacuating the building. She quietly walked out, leaving us all wondering if we should run like hell. I ran to my desk to grab my wallet and digital camera of course, then joined everyone else outside to wait for the building to burn down.

It ended up being just a motor in the air ventilation system that had burned out. Never even saw a firetruck.
