Amid the sea of “lasts” that I’ve been wading through these past few days/weeks, I completed what my be the coolest “last” tonight, that being my last team dinner. My co-workers and my team took me out to dinner tonight. If a team group like this can be cozy, that’s what it was. These are all pretty remarkable folks, really hard workers, smart, and fun.
We talked about work, of course, and they asked me about my writing (“What will you do on your first day?” “Will you ever set an alarm clock again?” Do you write under other names?”), we talked about our kids and family traditions. It was a good time.
My work has been fascinating, and exciting, and challenging and all that. But, as I’ve said before, the people are the thing I’ll really miss. Tonight reminded me of that.
