burning room



When we got back to the office that Monday, everything was warm. My copper colored coffee mug, the water bottle, the 1930s era stapler… everything was warm to the touch. It was as if an architect and a chef had put the entire room in an oven, set to “medium warm” Friday night, and allowed it to cook all weekend, this is what the room would feel like on Monday morning.

The walls had a fever. The bone white ceiling tiles brought to mind cremated human remains… I could imagine that they were still smoldering, even after I’d opened all the windows. Cool, crisp air from the windows mixed with the hyperactive boiler’s air to produce a dramatic view: thermal wave of rippling blue sky that resembled the ripples of a Fijian bay.

The room burned like a secret hope, unspoken and ungranted.

Upon walking in, I uttered a silent prayer. "By the whispers of the trees, please watch over me, Brother-Uncle Kifflom!"

I had to wonder if this had some connection to the squirrels that I saw playing near the building, earlier that morning. But I tossed that possibility aside immediately. It was unthinkable.

On a happier note, The National Defense University sent me a huge poster illustrating best practices for bio, chem and "dirty bomb" attacks. I put it next to the Clifford the Big Red Dog poster. Nice contrast.

  • Have you thought about taking some Potassium Iodide (KI) tablets? Sometimes it helps after a "dirty bomb" attack. I hope that's not what happened. If so, it could be the squirrels. Watch out. They are the ememy!

    Watch out!

    Seriously.

  • Kifflom is good, but what does he have to do with the Sister Freedom Tapes? That's what I want to know.

  • Praise Jehova. There is no other god than the one and only.The maker of this world,Jehova loves you,and he knows that all this werid Kifflom-crap is only there to make you all blind, and break god's rules. Scientology standing behind that Epsilonism. They are out for your money and nothing else. Who can be so dumm to believe the world is only 157 years old...? It must be very very dumm people who believe that, so the cultmembers average Iq must be less than 69 i guess.... thx. Follow Jehova! Find the only truth!
