secret transport

Today at work Mr. M showed me to the coolest thing ever: a SECRET ELEVATOR. I thought he just meant, like, the freight elevator, but he led the way down the hall, on past the main bank of elevators, and into this copy room I'd never seen before, and in the back was this tiny wood-paneled elevator that goes from the 5th to the 10th floors. It's like a service elevator so the servants (us?) can go to the executive floors (9th and 10th) without sullying the main elevators. Or something. I have no idea why this elevator is there, but I felt very sneaky when Mr. M, Barkley and I stepped out of it into a nook of the Xtreme-O plush 9th floor. Unfortunately, the free breakfast food Mr. M had spotted earlier was gone by the time we got there. Bummer. I was looking forward to free breakfast food. (As Barkley said, "Stale danish? Sweet!!") I felt like I was in some kind of adventure novel for kids.

So this fantastic job of yours also has servants? I should have expected as much. I'm also glad to see that serious publications are also in the intra-department free-breakfast-stealing game.

Next you'll be finding the five-and-a-half floor and a secret portal into a creepy character actor's brain.

...or a wardrobe that transports you to a magical allegorical kingdom! Children's book material, indeed.

Oh yeah. Journalists are all about free food.

S.Vix, they showed me that door on my first day! It's between the 1st and 2nd floors, it's much shorter than regular doors, and the sign says "John Malkovich's Head." I did not try to go through the door. No magic wardrobes yet, sadly.
