Due to current permissions, I am unable to reprint the content of the narrative article.

The piece is a 1st person narrative detailing an unusual day in the course of the engineer's profession. It was published on April 1, 2008 in HPAC Engineering, the monthly magazine.

I edited for grammar and clarity of the article on behalf of the author, before it was submitted for publication.
