Today was Pongal, an optional holiday. The roads were deserted and we equaled the record time for reaching office: 0825hrs. The sky was overcast and everything look dull. As usual, I took the stairs instead of the lift since my cubicle is located on the 2nd floor. Halfway through, I make the mistake of touching the railing...and my hand sticks!
Yuck, there's fresh green paint and my indelibly incriminating imprints are now there for all to see...until the next round of coats! Now that the damage is done, a security personnel asks me to take the lift instead since the staircase was closed for maintenance. How prompt!
Dashed to the washroom on reaching my floor since my green hand didn't look too attractive. No water in the first basin. Water in the another basin but the soap dispenser was empty. Third time lucky. Vigorously rubbed my hands for 15 mins until the paint was gone.
Rest of the day was relatively eventless except that reaching home set a new record: 1900 hrs.
