I went to a retirement luncheon yesterday and ended up sitting next to a colleague I've worked several projects with over the years...not closely, but we did work together. Even though I had acknowledged him when he sat down late at the luncheon, about half way through he turned to me and said, "Excuse me, I don't think we've met." At first I was annoyed and pointed out our past. Then, seeing his embarrassment, and realizing we hadn't worked together in the last year, I continued with, "But I was much heavier then." Left feeling much better!
