He came like a knight of old...alone and prepared to defend.
Unfettered by armor, he steeled himself before our building...ready if need be to do battle.

My company hired a temporary guard today. One of the radio stations in the building changed music formats and there was a fear that some listeners might be upset.

I glanced upon him from our ivory tower, reassured by this noble visage.

Later, I met him in the building lobby and was his bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and countenance.

His trusty steed was equally impressive.

Yes, I knew he was a man who could handle anything on his own...he must be, since every inch of his car's interior, with the exception of the driver's seat, was filled with fast food wrappers.

At least I know no one will be able to sneak up on us....we'd hear them laughing first.
