Today was made particularly bright as my coworker arrived, and before I could even compliment her new haircut, she noticed mine.
Some days she has office work to do and some days, she just likes to share the office space with another human (you freelancers will understand).
The best thing about sharing an office with Marie on Wednesdays is that you never know what might become fodder for conversation. We might discuss the crazy local politics of Jersey City or the political ramifications of an international super hero group on a relief mission in the unindustrialized world. We could be laughing at the ridiculousness of an octopus in Germany predicting the World Cup or admiring an octopi pendant purchased at a cool boutique in Brooklyn.
Yeah, work can suck, but Wednesday afternoons aren’t bad.
