The Fungus Among Us

Yesterday we found a thick layer of fungus lurking in the bottom of our decaf carafe. One of my coworkers, who I'll call Fungus Lover (not his real name), said he thought the fungus was leaking penicillin into the decaf and it would ultimately make us stronger. This was, of course, after he spooned it out and we all examined its gestating form in the kitchen sink.

So today as I was walking into work, I noticed a thin layer of grime growing out from our door, down the hall, and into the bathroom. Upon further inspection, it appears that our young fungi friend mutated, sort of like the Blob, and grew itself all the way down to our bathroom. It probably needed a damp, moist area. So now it's set up some sort of lair, and worst of all it's made its main den the middle bathroom stall (which was by far the best one to use). So now we have to use the first floor's bathroom. Not very convenient.

I just thank God it was decaf and not the Cafe Special. Can you imagine what would have happened had it been festering in caffeine!?!

The word moist should be stricken from this blog!

At least we don't have to worry about the new orleans wouldn't survive in there
