Yesterday, a few minutes after 12:00pm, I was sitting at my desk when I heard this really loud, WHHUUUUMP! What the heck was that? I've heard raccoons and iguanas on the roof of my office...heard branches fall, but this was mucho bigger.
I waited a few minutes before I ventured outside to see if I could figure out what it was. I walked around and looked at all the roofs. Nothing. Hmm.
Later, I told my boss what happened. She asked me when the shuttle was landing. I said, "Oh, it landed safely around 12:20." "Maybe something fell off the shuttle!", was her reply. Wow. I never thought of that... it did fly in across Cuba, so we would've been in it's path...
A couple hours later, the AC started making an awful buzzing sound. I called for one of my co-workers to see if he could check it out. I then told him about the loud WHUMP I heard. Maybe something fell into the AC unit? Well, he got up on the roof, switched the unit off and on and the buzzing stopped. He looked around and didn't see anything on the roofs. (Are you figuring this one out yet?)
I got home that evening and Sam and my Mom said, "Hey, did you hear the shuttle?!?" George immediately said, "Yeah, I was at Black Point and I heard it!" (Do you get it NOW?)
At the precise moment, there was a knock at the front door. I opened it to find Bill Engvall standing there with a condescending look on his face. He handed me a piece of paper and said, "Here's your sign." then poof! he was gone...
(If you still don't get it, email me and I'll fill you in, then mail you your sign)
