I'm not sure what the etiquette is on these forums regarding CYOAs, or whether they're actually allowed but I thought I'd start one considering I'm a tad bored and feel like writing. Anyway, I hope this steps on no toes.
The wooden blades of the ceiling fan turn as slowly as the wheels of justice. With each revolution, the motor creaks out a muffled protest. It does little to revitalise the hot, dry air of your office. Tendrils of dirty smoke spiral upwards as a poorly stubbed cigarette smoulders in an ashtray already overflowing with the husks of its cousins. The pink and orange fingers of an ignored sunset feel their way through the dusty Venetian blinds behind your desk. You are about to leave for the day after yet another day without a client when there's a knock on the external door of your office.

A. Ah, a client!. Go to greet them.
B. They want something, they can come to me. Call them in.
C. Probably a travelling salesman, they'll go away. Ignore them.
D. Eh, they can wait. Answer the door, eventually.
"Baby," I said. "I'm a genius but nobody knows it but me."
