About fifteen years ago, I had a condo in Laguna Hills and was working at home on a "rush" programming project. Very intense. Very focused. At the end of three days, while I was making a tape to hand deliver to the client, I walked out to my patio - only to discover everything covered in three inches of dark soot. It seems like one of those nasty brush fires, of which California is so famous, had gotten a little close. Turns out the whole area was evacuated. Except for me.
Focused? Please don't ever hand me an unpeeled banana when I'm working, okay?
