How It Begins

The OKAY button is blinking again.

Its ridiculously bright yellow light makes everyone in the room appear to be suffering from intermittent jaundice. Fortunately you're the only one in the room, because there's no room in here for anyone else. The OKAY button is also buzzing, with the patented Elevated Responsiveness Tone guaranteed to remain irritating no matter how often one is forced to hear it. Somehow the most annoying part, though, is that the blinking and the buzzing are slightly out of sync.
