I’ve been meaning to post this, but haven’t had the chance to sit down and write. For reference, just know that I had a full day of work with my co-workers in a setting where we were all together in one room for a work retreat. After the retreat we had our office Holiday Party and it was a blast! This happened last Friday (12.10.2021).
Here goes my dream:
I was in the conference room and we were discussing thinking about “out of the box” ideas and a said individual (aka *) suggested we call Torey. I was like, “We can do that!?” and was told we could so I took over the phone, dialed his number and he answered!
* : “Hi Torey! I’m here with Anita and the rest of our team and we’re discussing on ways to think outside of the box. Do you have any suggestions!?”
Me: WTF!? We actually have TOREY on the phone!? I was incredibly excited/confused/but overwhelmed with JOY!
Torey: “Yeah sure – just think about being different from the industry standards and UP-lifting.”
* : “Thank you, Torey! I think Anita may want to talk to you alone so we’re going to transfer your call to another room so you both can talk.”
Me: OMG THANK YOU!
I get to the other room, shut the door and:
Me: “Torey, how ARE you!?”
Torey: “I’m good – chillin’
I started to pay attention to the background noises and it sounded like he was in an episode of The Jetsons – like “space noises!”
Me: “Where are you!?”
Torey: “I’m not sure actually – not sure what to call this place, but I’m good! Been chillin'”
Me: “So can I keep calling you here? I love being able to talk to you after so long!”
Torey: “I don’t think that’s a good idea, ‘Nita.”
Me: “Why the fuck not!??”
Torey: “It’s not good for you – I mean I love talking to you, but you gotta let me go. You really need to move on.”
I was truly heart broken, but understood what he was trying to say. And then I woke up in tears.
That is all.
