I had a meeting scheduled for tomorrow at 11am, but on Friday, the person with whom I planned to meet came up to me and said,

I know we’re supposed to meet on Monday, but I just realized the Gay Pride Parade is Sunday and there’s a good chance I’ll come in late or work from home the next day.

I love that. 

Had they 1. not forewarned me or 2. made up some bullshit, I’d likely be miffed.

But their honesty is so refreshing, I don’t care at all… in fact, I’m happy for them to celebrate on what is a really exciting day in NYC given the recent news.
