So, we had a state-wide tornado drill this morning. They do these every month on the first Friday of the month, but I guess this was a "special" one...which would explain why I got like 50 e-mails about it yesterday (which, truthfully, I totally ignored).
So, the alarm sounded this morning and I just kept on working like normal until there was a knock on my office door. The "safety lady" for our floor told me to get out of my office. I asked her what I should do and she said go downstairs. So, I took the stairs from my top-floor office (8th floor) all the way down to the 1st floor, only to be led to a door that was going right outside. I thought, "This isn't right. Do not go outside in a tornado!" Ha.
So, I decided sitting in my hallway would have been safer. And I walked all the way back UP the 16 flights of stairs to my office.
Well, by then, the drill was over and I was like, "Thanks a lot, Safety Lady!"
But, guess what? That little, tiny torturous walk up the stairs burned 63 calories and you better BELIEVE I logged it in my Fitness Tracker! Ha!
