The Death of a Hero?

September 29th, 2009

It has been a dark day for my 4pm ritual of making smoothies.  Running on low supplies because my office fridge had undergone a sneak inspection, we managed to make a few smoothies.  During the fifth smoothie the bullet went berserk, whirring at a higher pitch than ever before releasing the magic smoke

Luckily, two of the floor’s voluntary fire wardens were present at the time, making sure that we all survived the ordeal, physically if not emotionally.  One of them called out asking if there was a fire extinguisher available.  Interestingly enough, it was about 3 feet from her at the time.  I’m glad we have these people watching my back.

Now the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not the Bullet will perform tomorrow at 4, or if we will have to shoot it like the trusty steed it has been.
