A cup of coffee and a very obliging colleague were all that were needed to break my heart today afternoon.
So, my colleague has an 8-year old son and she was talking about what a handful he is. “You have no clue Kavitha. He has such a bad temper and he shows it all on me,” she said. I just nodded my head in empathetic acquiescence having no inkling to what she was about to say next.
It was then that she dropped the bombshell. “He is a Leo, you know. An August born Leo. An August 15th born Leo. You can imagine.”
Ah well, dear colleague. It is not a funny sight imagining my mom saying those exact same words about me elsewhere.
