I walk into my job and turn the corner towards the offices, of which mine is last.
In one office I spy all my co-workers.
What is this? A meeting? No one told me…how typical.
Why does everyone look so emotional?? One is sighing with a look of perfect contentment. Others make exclamations…”Wow…” “How?…” “Why?…”
Has something happened? Is this a private intimate moment between friends? Has something miraculous occurred and I missed the memo? Why am I the one always left out?
I walk closer. Another co-worker bursts into hysterical laughter as the conversation continues in muted tones.
Perhaps this is a happy occasion. Someone has good news?
I walk up to one of the group, a grin on my face, eager to join in the camaraderie, wondering what event impacted this weekday morning so much more than any other.
I whisper to him, “Hey, whatcha talkin about?”
He grins at me in sheer delight, “Paul McCartney :D”
