I was about to leave when I started talking to a few guys that were getting off of work. They were dressed in suits and I commented on how beautiful the building was. We struck up a conversation, and one of them realized that he had forgotten his cell phone in the office, so he asked me to walk with them to go get it. It turns out they worked for the governor, and took me back into the governor's wing, which is not a public area.

And here, no shit, is the governor's desk. I even went and sat in the chair while they took my picture. Didn't expect to be sitting there when I woke up that morning.

One for the road

and the best for last
