Today was my penultimate day at work. Yes, I know, it’s weird having your last day on a Monday but them’s the breaks. My colleagues decided that today was as good a day as any to embarrass me with the “sorry you leaving us” speech and present gifts. I’m not so good with face-to-face praise, ergo am not so gracious at these types of events, though the thoughts and gestures are much appreciated. And I did get lots of well-considered gifts, including a lovely bunch of flowers that have these pretty little things, whose name eludes me.
