ad nauseum - a Latin term for a discussion that has continued so long that it has continued "to [the point of] nausea" (Source: Wikipedia).
On my desk at work is a framed photo of me at work en femme on Halloween in 2012. It serves as a reminder to me of who I really am and is my way of virtually going to work every day en femme.
During the two years that that photo has been on my desk, only one co-worker has ever commented or asked about it and their question was an innocuous, "Who took the photo?"
I am not sure what that says about me or my co-workers.
- Maybe my co-workers suspect that something is going on with me, but are too polite to ask.
- Maybe my co-workers suspect that something is going on with me, but are bored with it, so don't ask about it and just wonder what is taking her so long to move on with her life.
- Maybe my co-workers feel that it is none of their business or maybe they just don't care.
Regardless, it will be interesting to hear my co-workers thoughts on the matter after the fact.
I appreciate all your concerns that you e-mailed me or left as comments to Thursday's post. I believe that I have everything covered (read my replies to your comments) and there is only one thing holding me back: telling my wife.
That one thing holding me back is a big thing and I am carefully strategizing how I am going to handle it. Haste makes waste, as they say, but on the other hand, I am ready to burst and need to resolve this soon.
