The standing nickel has fallen

1/13/2010
I was looking for a Pantone solid coated formula guide in my desk this morning at 9:33am. As I closed the middle drawer, a clinking sound filled the cubicle’s air. Immediately my head turned towards the nickel whose standing prose inspired dreams for the past 8 days, 18 hours and 33 minutes. My gaze filled me with relief as I saw that proud nickel now resting on its side. I felt content that I was able to witness the Great Fall.

During its furious stand I wondered how the Great Fall would occur. I was afraid it would happen when I wasn’t at my desk leaving me to endlessly wonder what happened.

It’s with great hope that this powerful nickel will inspire other nickels to stand on their side and display their might and beauty for all the world to see and admire.

Monday January 4, 3:00pm – Wednesday January 13, 9:33am
8 days 18 hours 33 minutes (that’s over 200 hours, 210.5 hours actually)

Where did the sharpie go? Did it run away in fear?

Also on this same great day of the that the Nickel fall, I was temporarily granted the superpower of Death-ray Vision.

You should give it a proper burial and take it to the vending machine
