All we know is that a kind construction worker came in to let us know that we might die and we didn't believe him until we smelled gas and saw every construction worker known to man on the street looking scared.
The all-clear was given about 15 minutes after evacuating. I didn't see any firefighters or fire trucks but whatever. Will we die upon re-entry into our building? Or have we all resigned ourselves to "dying for the cause"? I'll never know because I'm currently Slogging from our digital editor's apartment. He has many plants. It's nice. I may never come back to the office again.
UPDATE : Chase (the aforementioned digital editor) has a pool filled with 90,000 Orbeez®. Working from home is hard. We continue to suffer.
