Eating in large groups is usually not my thing. It’s hard to follow all the conversations. You can’t eat all of the thing that everyone’s supposed to be sharing. Splitting the check requires an abacus and a notary public.
But sometimes, like tonight, big dinners are fun. Conversation comes easily. Stories are told to shock and delight. Alcohol flows. Guards are let down.
I’m lucky to like who I work with. They are good people and I laugh hard almost every day. This social aspect of my job is important. Creativity requires fertile ground, even when it’s being harvested for corporate gains.
This has been a good year so far.
