The Thundercats had Mumm-Ra.
Batman has these guys.
Vampires have this chick.
But the number one enemy of an office building is one of these...
Which is why I have been VERY nervous at work the past couple of days. On Tuesday we heard a noise outside the office building around 2:30 PM. It sounded like a leaf blower, which would have been a normal sound if it wasn't February in Chicago. So me and a few co-workers head to the windows and see a helicopter.
So what? I know, my building is along a major highway. Traffic copters are all over the place.
But this wasn't a traffic copter. It was hovering right outside my building, about 50 feet off the ground. And as soon as we peaked out the windows it took off.
And it got even weirder when it appeared again yesterday. And once again, took off as soon as it saw us looking at it.
It could be that I have seen WAY too many movies, but all I could think about were the scenes where the bad guy is piloting a helicopter, chasing the action star, and loses control and the copter goes smashing into the innocent office building, killing god only knows how many cubicle dwellers.
I swear, if I see Bruce Willis anywhere NEAR my office in the next few days I am done. Gone. Grabbing my bag and hitting the road.
I am not going to be an action movie casualty.
