RANDOM THOUGHTS: So this morning after coming in and filling up my water bottle, I promptly knocked it over and tried unsuccessfully to catch it and it ended up clanking (metal) a couple times on it's way to falling off my desk and into my garbage can. When this happened, I had headphones on and was listening to the news. While I continued listening to the news, I began to clean up the little bit of water that had spilled along with some of my tea that I spilled trying to not let my water bottle spill.
I guess while I could not hear anyone, two employees near my nearby cube were talking to me, asking me if I was alright. Of course, since I had headphones on, I did not hear them. Finally one of them stuck his head over my cube and I took off my headphones and found out they thought maybe I had passed out or passed on. Ha. I guess my water bottle made quite a ruckus and the last bong into my garbage can must have resembled me hitting the floor.
Anyway, I think they were glad that I was still with them. I guess I must have that look that I could drop at any second. My real theory though, is that they were positioning and getting ready to fight over who got my stapler. Real life is the best!
