Never Done: I drank alcohol at work
Just a little tiny bit, but still -- I don't think I've ever done that before. It was all very appropriate: a going away party, a toast. As you know, I'm never interested in getting tipsy, and this was a circumstance in which I was even less interested. But it was good to celebrate, and, I think, important to toast the person who is moving on to their next endeavor. I also thought of it as an early shabes -- although I had to keep working afterward -- and I liked the ways that we all loosened up with each other afterward, less from the brew and more from the time we spent with each other -- away from our cubicles and more and more into each other's lives.
