Treehouse Office

Turning over a new leaf.

Cautiously, I stepped across the gap, grasping a branch overhead to steady myself. It was a long way down. Once across, I stepped into a cool, modern office with a strong glass floor.

To my left I saw a Note Goat sidle past the water cooler before it nimbly leapt in through an open window and landed by a cluttered desk.

A pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons stared at me through the window as I walked past. They seemed totally unfazed by all of the activity inside, until I realised they were looking at mountain vistas on their side of the window film that I could see through, to observe them.

I was fifteen storeys above the ground, high in a tree, on my first day at a new workplace. Everything swayed gently in the stiff breeze, as the tree flexed and moved as nature intended.

An Office Cat brushed against my leg, purring gently.

       I love it, I'm bunning it, but I gotta call you on a Halfbakery technicality, since you haven't really invented anything. You painted a wonderful picture all the same.

       So, you already work in a 15 storey office tower that's been constructed in a tree?

       OTS Product A (business office) + OTS Product B (treehouse) does not = new invention.
Alterother, Feb 04 2013

       With respect, [Alter], combination of existing ideas is almost always a new invention:   

       Water bowl + Heat = Soup cauldron
Scoop + Handle = Shovel
Motor + Carriage = Motor Car
Motor car + Fortress = Tank
Motor car + Bird = Aircraft

       Love the office cat. Made me tear up. A beautiful work of art. LOVE+

       I suppose this would be the CBD, [hippo].   

       Carbonaceous Business District, or summat.
UnaBubba, Feb 04 2013

       Yes, Treehouse Town needs places for the folks to work. It all flows together, very organically. Lovely.

       //Carbonaceous Business District// Right next to the Arboretail District

       What [Alterother] said, but I still want!! [+]
Baked by Swiss Family Robinson! Still want!

       Ubie, it is a long-held HB convention that the simple combination of two things that already exist, especially without altering either of them, does not constitute a halfbaked invention. Tell me I'm wrong, anyone.   

       I didn't mean to make a big thing out of it, so I conclude here, and if it is diplomatically necessary, I concede as well.
Alterother, Feb 04 2013

       Anyone might not say anything...you know some things just smell like a baking croissant even if they're not.
xandram, Feb 04 2013

       I give half a bun for the Office, half a bun for the Treehouse. Hey that's a whole bun. [+]

       That's better, and much funnier, [bigs].
