I was due back to work today. Instead, I went to my old office to pack up my personal stuff. Technically, it's not my office anymore, because I am no longer employed.
Afterward, I went to lunch with my (former) boss and co-workers. While I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with my (former) co-workers, I found it odd to have my (former) boss sitting there with a semi-blank look on her face. It was almost as if she felt forced to be there. It was enough for me to take notice. But then again, maybe I'm just overly sensitive.
Strangely enough, it didn't make me sad to say goodbye. And now, as I type this, I'm actually smiling.
(I just reread this and noticed that I overly used commas. My ninth grade English teacher would be proud.)
