Fire Drill

I got caught in a fire drill at the Daley Center today.  According to our lecture from the fire guy, we are apparently NOT supposed to break through the windows if there is a real fire.  Well, Mr. Fire Marshall, I've got news for you.  If there's a fire in the Daley Center, and my options are a) dying in fire at the Daley Center; b) living, but having to wait through the cluster-fuck that would be a fire in the Daley Center; or, c) crashing through a window in an epic blaze of glory, I'm going to pick "c" every time.

I've spent countless hours in line, wondering if I would be able to hurl myself through one of those windows.  Or, if I'd just bounce off and land in an embarrassed heap.  Having thought it through, and being encouraged by the fact that you even mentioned it as a conceivable option, I'm now confident that I'll be able to crash through that window like a human wrecking ball!

AND, I'm going to live through it!  Just to show you how it's done.
