Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore? - Carole King
Many folks, me included, do not care for dramatic changes.
Sure, you can argue that changes make life more interesting, but that's a tough sell in my opinion.
Over recent weeks, three co-workers have announced their respective plans to leave our nest here.
The three have varying lengths of service here, which not to say they won't be missed at varying feelings.
I've grown accustomed to conversing with them about such important topics, such as food, movies, TV shows and whether or not a certain Hollywood actor is dead.
Now, I realize people must move on to other facets of their lives. We wish them the best.
Losing one co-worker is normal. But three at one time seemed a bit much.
And then there's the logistic hassle of coordinating three farewell fests for outgoing personnel.
Should there be separate parties to honor each person? Or one gala event to recognize their achievements here?
One singular party would require a lot of cake, I think.
Perhaps there should be a trip to a local tavern, where drinks would flow, stories would be recounted.
We could bring a cake with us.
