Embracing the awkward.

Everyone has been in those situations at work when there's some unspoken awkwardness. When something has happened that is sort of hanging out there for a few days or weeks. No one really mentions it specifically, but it's the careful avoidance of the subject that becomes noticeable. I feel like I'm there right now. And I'm one of the awkward subjects, although I won't detail the story. Because I'm feeling a little bitter about it all, I decided it would be fun to make sure that everyone feels awkward, too. Not like I want to make a big issue of it, just having a little fun. Basically all I'm doing is bringing up the topic that everyone is hoping will be forgotten. Relishing my bad attitude. But in a cheerful way.

It will be over when I'm over it.
