A woman came into my store and mentally my rollerdex started to whirl... where do I know her from? BTA? Glencoe? Tball?
We talked a little and suddenly a light went on - San Francisco, worst job of my life - she was an editor, I was a developer. Hach! We congratulated each other to having found our way out of the jobs we had and having made it to Portland (Yupp, she lives here, too!)
...and while I am some times jealous to hear about former colleagues who have now initials behind their names, it felt really good today to be a bike shop lady in Portland!
