Not my last day at work, but the last day most of us are still together as a team – one of the guys who handed in his notice after me actually leaves before me. (I still have a week to go.)

We went for dinner and a few rounds of shuffleboard, which has sort of become our team’s go-to after-work activity. It’s social, mildly competitive, but easily combined with chatting and drinks.

We kept stepping around the elefant in the room for most of the evening, but gave up all pretense halfway through the dinner and spent a good while discussing the new CEO. By the end of the dinner we were all still mostly baffled and bewildered both about him as a person, and his plans for the product and the company. Then we switched to more wholesome topics.
