Scaredy Cat

I am easily scared. And jumpy. And most people who know me know this. It didn't take long for my co-workers to figure this out either... You can probably see where this is going.

So the other day, actually it was April Fool's Day, my co-worker K decided it would be the funniest thing ever to scare me. And scare me she did...

I had stepped out of my office to hunt down a student's file. When I came back into my office, I was thinking about that student and their file, not about crazy people that may be hiding under my desk waiting to scare me. So when K, who was wearing mostly black that day, reached her hands out from under my desk and growled at me as I was sitting down in my chair, I screamed.

Loudly.

Not one of those little, "oh haha you got me" screams, but one of those "Fight or flight?!? Fight or flight!?!" screams. One of those screams that bring people running from the lobby to see if I am okay. One of those screams that was heard by everyone in the tri-state area. Yep. One of those.

Note to self: Always stop and check for crazy people when walking into your office.
