I get to work long before the office fills up. Now that the year is waning, I sit in the dark until the sun comes up into my office window. I sit in the dark, drink my coffee and slowly wake up by blaring Gaydar Radio, London’s gay internet radio station.
This happy Steve time was interrupted this morning by the fire alarm with all its screeching alarms and flashy strobe lights. Well it’s predawn, I’m alone with thirty fire alarm strobe lights flashing and gay house music blaring. What would you? I grabbed my highlighters to use and glow sticks and ran to the hall way and danced to the upbeat disco. The strobes flashing to the bass beat.
“Uh, are you okay sir?”
“Christ! Sorry, yeah I’m okay.”
“Maybe you should head outside. It’s just a test but maybe some air would do you good.”
Six o’clock in the morning and I’ve already brought shame to myself and to our people.
