|We have a relaxed dress code...|
|Yes, this is a work function.|
As luck would have it, his name is Jamie, too (although spelled differently), and he's adorable. He always says hi to us and Tiana always jokes about seeing "my man" when we go there for lunch. Well today, even though there was a line, he had my lunch already made by the time I got to the front to order. I definitely don't tend to change up the things I like to eat if a stranger knows what I'm going to order without even asking. I don't know why this made my day, but it was cute. And I could have sworn he was a little embarrassed. Hee hee
After work, I met up with my friend, Kate, at our usual sushi joint, Kampai, where I consumed one too many glasses of plum wine.
Between the wine and soy sauce (non-gluten free, so I might pay for that later), I'm already retaining water. It was delicious and Kate is always fun. She's actually a buyer for one of my clients, but happened to move to Phoenix and work from home so we go out for sushi a couple of times a month. I'm going to have to spend a little more time on the treadmill tomorrow since I didn't run tonight and my ankles will look like sausages from water retention. Lovely!
|Oh, so this isn't normal behavior? Huh... (source)|
My heart is breaking for her. She still comes to work and still has a good attitude, but today she was wearing a hat and seemed more subdued. It really puts everything into perspective. Sitting next to her, I'm reminded every day how precious life is. I don't want to seem cheesy by saying that, but watching someone go through this is really an eye opener. It reminds me not to give up on people, goals, or life in general.
It reminds me that we can be and do anything we want. As lazy as I can be, I really do think of Theresa when I think about skipping going to the gym and training. I think about things I want to accomplish and that not everyone gets a chance to fulfill their dreams.
