Working Mothers Are Always Running
Yesterday, I was listening to Radio Head at full blast on my headphones when I felt someone tap me on the shoulder as I passed through office security.
I turned round to find one of my colleagues smiling at me. I turned off my headphones, and looked at her. She was already running away from me, calling out, "Hi ! Happy New Year! Catch you later."
Recently she came back from childcare leave, and now she is now a working mother.
I also have another colleague who is a working mother. She also runs whenever she leaves the office because she has to to pick up her twins from preschool. I think that they are really great.
Seeing her disappear into the distance, made me want to write a haiku.
