The Journey To HR, Part 5!

“Brap zippy-zip-zip flong ZAP!” screamed the little person as he pulled the trigger. “Now you’re DEAD!”

I felt nothing.

Of course not. It was a toy gun.

“Lay down! Act like you’re DEAD!”

I did not.

“Act like you’re dead or I’m going to tell my mommy!”

I walked a little bit closer.

“Bob? Bob Senitram is that you?”

“I’m just playing a game. Uh, I gottta GO!”

With that, he tried to get out of the desk but found himself stuck.

He dropped the toy gun, picked up the desk with his body still stuck and ran thru the hanging bead things that the hippies like.

I checked a board to see where HR was located and headed to the elevator.

After a few minutes it arrived. The door opened, nobody got out and I went in.

“What floor?” asked the elevator operator.

“HR, if you please,” I replied.

“That’ll be the first floor. Please move away from the door, don’t want you to be cut in two!”

I moved back, the door closed and the operator pressed the one available button.

“First floor!” he announced. “Please exit the elevator, and try not to get cut in two!”

I gave him a thumbs up and exited.

And found myself exactly where I was before I entered the elevator.

I pressed the elevator button again, but this time when the door opened I jabbed a couple fingers into his eyes and he flew back into a display of Quisp cereal.

Satisfied, I looked around the lobby and finally spotted a sign with an arrow pointing to HR.

On my merry, squishy way I went.

Until my path was blocked by a bear.

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
