Always Odd

The floor I work on is never quiet. People shouting, talking, phones ringing, at its quietest, there's always a buzz.

Except at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Then, it goes absolutely silent for 2 minutes, with dozens of people standing silently above their banks of monitors. No phone calls, no orders over the intercom... just silence.

It's surreal.
