With the threat of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes today, I thought I’d do a throwback to the last time there were tornadoes in the area. Cue sheer panic. The sky is green. The tornadoes are coming. No one knows what to do.
So we pull the shades down on the windows. Because that’s going to stop the tornado.
Then we all mustered (which should never have been made into a verb, by the way) in the hallway by the bathrooms. Because the staircase was just too obvious.
Here everyone feels the need to share any story from their past that’s loosely related to a tornado. Because, let’s be honest, the only thing we all have in common is that we’re being forced to stand in a hallway because of a tornado.
And then there’s the one person who takes it too far and relates this event to the anxiety they felt on 9/11. Not the same thing.
Here’s to hoping we don’t have a repeat of that today. Or that we do. Hard to say which would be better.
