So, I recently learned that one of the major projects I was working on since our director left is a dead project. There is nothing more to be done and now I'm left with a bit of extra time on my hands at work which sometimes leads me to pondering the misc. Here is an email exchange from work today...
So, apparently I’m having trouble drinking today because I just choked a bit on my water (for, like, the 10th time today)…anyway, that got me thinking about if I really were choking and I was just sitting alone at my desk – how would I get saved? I guess I would first slam myself into the back edge of one my office chairs (not the rolling one, obviously) and if that didn’t save me I guess I would have to stagger out into the open area gesturing the official, international “I’m Choking” sign and hope that someone notice. But then I worry, what if someone who doesn’t like me noticed and chose to do nothing…how long do I have to stagger further from my office and closer to help? Deep thoughts, man.
LOL. I’m just down the hall and so is (other co-worker), so there are two people who would notice right away if you came staggering out of your office and we like you, so as long as I wasn’t with a student, I would be able to help you. Course, it’s been a long time since I learned the Heimlich.
