At work I share an office with another girl. I’m lucky she’s cool or else it would be miserable; it’s not a big office so if she stank or ate weird food or got sick, I would be directly and immediately affected. The past two days she’s come in a little later than usual, and it’s been kind of lonely. Most days we get in around the same time and talk about anything that happened overnight. Since she hasn’t been there, I just do a couple Sudoku puzzles, drink my tea, and listen to music I know she probably wouldn’t like.
