Caught


My co-workers are hilarious. They have been planning various things for my going-away party on Friday, and they are doing their best to cloak it in as much secrecy as possible. I'm flattered by the notion they're doing anything, so I made a decision right away to respect the secrecy. I'm making no effort to discover what they're planning. I won't even try to imagine what may happen. But to retain some semblance of secrecy, I practically had to wipe my memory.

People have been huddling in small groups with poorly fabricated nonchalance. If I had been paying attention and keeping track, in the past week alone, I would have witnessed 26 not-so-secret secret meetings, caught 147 furtive glances, laughed at 5 dramatic caught-red-handed reactions, and overheard two accidental public disclosures of would-be private projects.

But I'm not keeping track. At all. It's just so much fun, and so flattering to see people work so hard at trying to show me a good time and honor/embarrass me (for me, those two actions are inseparable).

I'm gonna miss these people. But . . . I'm still leaving.

  1. When I worked in Illinois before getting hitched to Michael and moving to Indiana, the people I worked with were throwing me a little going away/wedding present bash. I had no idea because my boss worked on a different floor than me, so they could have pulled it off quite nicely. My roommate (who also worked at the same place), however, decided to e-mail me and say, "Just so you know, Suzanne (my boss) is throwing a party for you in the cafeteria today." Thanks for ruining the surprise, roomie. I must give this brief background - she was hard core chasing after Michael (while he wasn't even on my radar) and he asked me out...things were never the same with her after that...

  2. Oh, that's just lovely. I guess you kind of got back at her by, you know, bearing his children and stuff. Still, that ain't right.
