OK, so now I _have_ to hear the backstory - _when_ did you tell her what
happened? Then? (Maybe she noticed the look on your face once you realized
what you'd done? :-) Later? Never? :-)
Oh, she noticed. There are those moments of mild annoyance: "Maaan!"
and maybe even a desk slap. Moments worthy of a 4 letter word, and then
the times like that, the jaw dropping sock in the gut feeling.
I was an EE working on a radar system, she was a computer scientist
doing coding. She knew I did something bad by my reaction. The lovely
Ms. Hsi's response was something like, "That's what happens when you
give an engineer root." With a laugh, I might add.
