A colleague invited me to go to lunch yesterday. I had already eaten my little salad so I declined, but said I would be around today if he was going to eat out again. So I took a leap of faith and didn't bring lunch today. And I was asked to go to lunch. Am I now best friends with the two co-workers I ate with this afternoon? No. Did I struggle to keep conversation flowing because I don't know much about these people? Yes. Did I feel a little bit less like an invisible office hermit? Yes. Was it worth it? I'll let you know - I feel a little heartburn coming on.
