It's a bird! It's a Plane!..... oh wait......

I left the front door open when I got to work (early, 7:00am) this morning since it was so nice outside. As I was listening to the messages on my voice-mail I noticed something fly in through the door out of the corner of my eye. It was a dragonfly.  Normally I am not afraid of dragonflies.  I don't think they hurt you and they are kind of pretty.  When I think of dragonflies, I think of this:

Awwwwwwwwww ;)

But this dragonfly was different. It. Was. BIG. And swooping.  Like a murderous pterodactyl!!!

It wanted to eat me.  So I did the only reasonable thing to do..... I dropped my phone, fell out of my swivel chair (is this workers comp??) and scrambled down the hallway to the bathroom, seeking refuge from the prehistoric beast! I'm pretty sure it shrieked, or hissed, or something. It was awful :(

I managed to collect my wits and arm myself with my pink broom and headed back out to my desk to see if I could steer the monster back towards, and hopefully out, the door. Luckily for me it only took 3 hysterical swoops with my broom to convince it to leave.  *hmph!* Goodbye and good riddance!

Thank goodness no one was around to witness my sissy la-la shame this morning. I acted a crazy fool. But in my defense, the thing was GIGANTIC.  It could have easily picked me up and carted me off to who knows where..... pterodactyl island? 

P.s. Pterodactyl is a hard word to spell.... it took me about 4 tries before spell check said I finally got it right :p
