Today’s perfect moment came about when I realized that the already small world I live in is in fact even smaller than that. The fact that those already miniscule gaps were bridged by pets was rather comforting.
Maybe it was idle chit chat, but the day saw three people standing together whose cats woke them up at 5:30 am by tapping them because they wanted to be fed. I just assumed it was only my cat and that other cats wait to be fed, or at worst meowed. Little did I know that other cats participate in the poke and headbut game.
Making connections between coworkers is hard, but when you have something in common, it isn’t as hard. I don’t always seek out those connections, lone wolf that I am, but I like them when they happen spontaneously.
