A farewell

My coworkers put on quite an event for my farewell. Today was my last day of work and I'll admit to lingering a little longer than I needed to - to delete every last email, to clean the desk, and make sure I got my mouse pad, that sort of thing. But on Tuesday there was a party, a High Tea sort of thing held at the Ambassador's residence.  I had suggested a coffee and snacks in our office library for people to drop by when they wanted. I was told to just shut up.

Quite a few people came and almost as many stopped me afterwards and the next couple days to apologize for not coming. It was remarkable and unexpected.
