Just noticed that one of my coworkers -- someone who has been here the entire time I have -- has the exact same voice as one of my exes. A big, important ex. Tone, cadence, everything.
Now I know what has been bothering me in an imperceptible way all these years. And now I know what will be bothering me for many years to come.
A very unfortunate coincidence.
Not that I think about that ex anymore, but it took a very long time before I didn't.
I just have to pretend it's the other way around, that it's my ex who has the same voice as my coworker. My coworker is older, after all. She had that voice first...
