And the fun never ends, kids

I think it is safe to say I experience a lot at work that most people probably just cannot comprehend. Putting all behaviors and injuries and such aside, remember that one time I was quarantined at work due to the Swine Flu epidemic pandemic?

Today ... I experienced a lockdown. Yup. You read that right. Now given, it was the least dramatic and shortest lockdown of my life {arguably seven minutes by the time I actually heard of it to the time the Logan City Police Department then told us it was over} ... Okay, it might have been the only lockdown of my life. But that is beside the point. Clearly. If you thought that was the point and now are unsure of what the point is ... it is this: I survived the lockdown.

Which of course leads us to questions ourselves: does this or does this not just validate even more what we all already knew ... I am the coolest person you know?

P.s. You can read more about why we had a lockdown here. Focus on the following phrases: "distraught man" and "concealed weapon" ... Kinda funny how those two things generally shouldn't go together, huh? :)

We are so glad you survived! (Can we be put at the top of the gold star list for at least a day or two? That would make our day.)

That sounds scary... I'm glad it wasn't long and that you SURVIVED ... for sure you are a big deal.

Mindy! Aren't you glad you said your prayers yesterday morning! (you being Mindy, I'm assuming you did). You for sure narrowly avoided a tragedy!

Imagine a room full of disability kids during a lockdown with the tendency to hyperventilate, cry, laugh uncontrollably, or wet themselves. Yea... Haha, oh life!

Congrats on the survival!
*muah*

once again, you're pretty much a big deal :) I remember having a lock down once in junior high... now as a teacher, we have to have a "lockdown drill" once a year, in addition to monthly fire drills...

While I haven't been part of a pandemic or even epedemic before, I have been feeling random chest/adomen pains the past few days that could be serious...
