Surprise! It's Arby's!

Kind of randomly around 10:00...the co-worker I share an office with "M" was telling my boss and I about how she had woken up with bad heart-burn and not feeling good, etc. It passed after about 20 min. and she came into work. But at 10, she was feeling it again, called her doctor, and was told she should go to the ER to rule out a heart attack. (She's around 60 years old)

So Boss says she'll drive M to the ER and someone else will drive M's car to leave it there for her when she's done. I go through two reactions: 1) Oh boy! I wanna do it, just for the diversion to get out of the office for a little while....then 2) Oh crap...I don't wanna do it, M's a smoker.

It turns out I'm the least busy and am volunteered, so I say OK.
Fortunately, the car wasn't as bad as I feared...she has a nice air freshener thing attached to a vent, and I drove with the window down (it's a balmy 54).

Bonus: As Boss is driving us back to work (around 10:30)...she says she wants to stop and get us an early lunch. Hmm...lemme think..OK! So she bought me a sandwich at Arby's...she offered to get me the full meal, but I was a good boy and said no thanks. I don't really need the fries, and I'm not drinking soda right now anyways.

It's 11:30 now, and we still haven't heard from M, so hopefully she's doing ok.

Don't blame me too much for making her health scare into an adventure for me...I'm sure if you read her blog later, it'll probably barely mention me at all! =)
