So there are you and here am I

After working from home the majority of last week, it was very nice to be at the office again Monday. Not least because of the food, as my bachelor's quarters are generally devoid of nutrition.

In the cafeteria today, having gotten my entree and salad I stopped to grab compostable utensils. They were just being restocked, and I darted a hand in to grab a fork. "Pardon me," I said, smiling.

She smiled back. "I haven't seen you in here in a while."

To the best of my knowledge we've never spoken a word to each other before. In my best imitation of people, I smiled again and said something banal about working hard and keeping my head down for a bit. We both laughed and smiled and I walked off.

The office is now something like five hundred people. I'll concede that I dress something outside the norm, for the building or for the region, but I don't like to think of myself as memorable. I don't really know how to take it.
