Office life can bring hours of munching, lots of caffeine, and a whole lot of sitting so we do our best to get outside and exercise at least once a day.  A good portion of our staff enjoys lunchtime walks around our quaint, industrial local. Two of my co-workers, TC and Dennis, took one such walk today, but received something a little extra than they had bargained for.
