"Nowhere special," I said, trying to remain noncommittal.
I didn't know how much of my personal life I wanted to reveal, and at that moment I reflexively opted for minimal disclosure
"It's a great day," she said. "I hope you enjoy the sunshine
"Thanks, hope you have a great week

I took a look in the break room. Empty of people, but stacked high with donuts and other treats dangerous for my blood sugar
. There was nothing left
but for me to leave.
