Fortunately no one was injured, but the news editor did take a blow to the face. Though I didn’t see the incident happen, I saw the aftermath, which was bent-over laughter coming from the press manager. The look of sheer shock never faded from her face as she told us a sheet of newspaper blew up and smacked her square in the face, with the force of the wind wrapping it around her head. It was a scene right out of a cartoon. And I won’t lie, I’m still angry I missed it.
I can’t imagine what a sight all this was to watch. It’s not every day you see women dressed in professional office attire chasing flying papers across a parking lot. A delivery man was fortunate enough to make a well-timed drop-off and got to watch it all play out. He tried to hide it, but I saw him snickering.
But that’s OK because we were laughing at ourselves anyway.
