On Monday my boss asked me about my weekend. "Did you meet anyone fascinating?" she asked. She is smart enough to know how unsubtle this question was.

She wanted to know whether I had fallen in love and whether I would move away, leaving her a position to fill. I pretended not to understand what was behind the question, and I told her that everyone I met was very nice.

I do not bother wondering whether she asked out of interest in my happiness, because it's easier to get through my work if I don't think of her as human.
