I had a nice chat with my boss today. Things went well. He didn’t curl up in the fetal position and block the door to his office once I told him of my plan but he did seem genuinely sorry to see me go. And for that, Doug, I thank-you. I’m so glad to be departing on the absolute best of terms.
This journey has been in the back of my mind for decades and in the serious planning stage for about 18 months, but as of today I can finally spread the word, safe in the knowledge that my employer won’t learn of my plans after reading a blog!
I have agreed to remain on the job until the 2014 edition of the Pepsi North America Cup on Saturday, June 21. The race will go off around 9:30 pm but my broadcast will still be on the air until well after 11, hence the countdown app on my phone shows 1 year, 0 days, 7 hours, 23 minutes.
But who’s counting?
