Drove to work this morning.
No one on the road.
No one in the parking lot.
No one in the workout room.
Gee, no one’s around, I thought. Must be cause I’m early. Didn’t think much of it.
A corporate campus for 10,000 people and not one car in the parking lot.
Except mine. A forlorn car. Out on its own with no place to hide and no one to blow fumes at.
In a workout room that could serve 100 people simultaneously, I pump pedals on the stationary bike by myself reading a book by comedian Sebastian Maniscalco about his life. Got lost in the narrative.
Sweat breaks out. Calves and thighs tone. Feel chiseled. The leader of the rat race.
Hit the showers. No one there either.
Went to my office area. Was as dark as night. Empty cubicles everywhere the length of a football field.
Sat down. Logged into my PC.
Called my friend. Told him no one came to work. Told him I didn’t bring my lunch. Wasn’t sure what I was going to eat.
He told me to go through the office refrigerators looking for lunch. Fantasized about Susie’s brown paper bag tuna casserole from last Tuesday or Bob’s Tupperware with two-week-old spinach meatloaf.
Went to Chatty G. Typed into the prompt:
Sportface: How come no one is at work today?
Chatty G: It’s Martin Luther King Day, a national holiday.
Sportface: Can you give me a rundown of everything good to eat in my office refrigerator?
Chatty G: That food is not for you. It belongs to Susie and Bob and Hank and Arnold and Betty and Tom and Gertrude and Carl and Belinda and Linda and Sean and Sharon.
Powered off my computer. Walked out.
Still no one. Not in the office. Not in the hallways, not in the parking lot.
Decided I needed to share this with the Baby Boomer Brotherhood.
None of them read it.
They had the day off.
