What If You Had a Coffee and Nobody Came?

That happened to me this morning. I think it happened once last year too. It was weird. And I had made biscotti. I know what happened. The date wasn't clearly communicated to everyone. I take partial responsibility for that. I thought about sending a note to everyone on the newsgroup a couple of days ago but didn't. The principal usually sends out an invitation and I left it for her. She did send one, but not until yesterday... Only she, one other person, and I were there.

It was okay, though. Nobody's feeling were hurt or anything, and I got a few minutes of 1-on-1 time with her to talk about Pete. And there were biscotti left over (all of the biscotti) for me to leave in the staff lounge where they'll be well received.

Still, it was weird. And a little embarrassing. So I sent a note out already about the next 2 coffees and am planning on sending another one when each of the dates get close. It basically said, "You were missed this morning. You missed out on homemade biscotti. Please come next time." I didn't think it was necessary to mention that only 1 person had come this time...

That's a bummer, but at least you got some one on one time!

Question: "What if you had a coffee and nobody came?"

Answer: I'd be buzzing from all that caffeine I had to consume myself, peeing a lot, and the roof of my mouth would be sore from all that biscotti! Not to mention, my shirt would probably be covered with coffee stains.
