I finally asked Ree "why are we hanging around here?" She sort of hemmed and hawed, said "well..." as some other folks walked in and placed cookies and brownies on a table. She said "this is in your honor". Wow. Wow. My boss had baked, others had baked, there were lots of goodies and a "belated happy birthday" card signed by everyone. They even sang happy birthday.
It was nice. Very nice.
