Our outside salespeople have been arriving throughout the day for the sales conference, and so did the only person in our group who works remotely.
My boss got permission last-minute to take our group out to dinner tonight. My two local coworkers couldn’t make it, so it was just three of us:
Our boss is a short colorblind dude with a punny sense of humor and a mop of dark hair, and the remote employee is a blonde Amazon woman from New England wearing heels she doesn’t need, and then there’s me (wearing mismatched socks and knockoff converse, capris, and a bright pink shirt mostly covered by a firefly hoodie). What a trio.
They had sushi and I got a burger I hardly touched, but I had my first drink (or two) in a while. It was a good night.
