It's Thursday night, but not for long ..
This image reminds me of morning, not just any morning, Friday morning. You've all been there, the week filled with late PM's, early AM's, missed deadlines, long meetings (discussing meetings), rushed lunches. Then comes Friday. Suddenly, there's no traffic, every light turns green, co-workers ask about your weekend plans, rather than bureaucratic favors. The question is not "did" you finish that project, its "where" we doing lunch.
You walk into the cafeteria, "AJ" the chef gives you the "NOD" to signify, "I'm starting your vegetable omelet". The cashier knows your name, tells you "this ones on her", everyone's smiling at you like its "happy hour". You walk back to your building, there's no cigaret smoke, only the smell of pollen from the honeysuckles, birds are chirping as you walk in and out of the shadows peaking between tree branches, from the rays of sunlight.
Meetings slowly begin to dissipate from your calendar, you sit back in your seat and watch your co-workers speak with excitement about their weekend. 1pm to 3pm moves lighting fast, next thing you know, you're walking out, laughing joking with "friends". No sign of the "big boss" ,You give the nod, let down the windows and sail in the wind.
Because its Friday :)
