1. Your work clothes feel funny. They seem tight (OMG, have I gained weight?!?!) and confining. I have never tugged… (and tugged… and tugged) so much in my life. No more cookies with afternoon tea for me.
2. People act strange. I know this is only me becoming reacquainted with actual people again and having to actually carry on a verbal conversation with someone other than through a computer keyboard.
3. You don’t know what to do with yourself. I feel awkward and out of place in my new office space. My new surroundings feel surreal and unnatural. The computer feels like it’s in a strange position, the chair is all wrong and the coffee tastes weird.
One bonus though: I work on a military installation and there are, like, men everywhere… OFFICERS!!! IN UNIFORM! (she says, in manner of Lydia Bennet discovering that the miltia were to be quarterd in Meryton) I wish you could see the gorgeous Naval Officer!! who sits in the cubicle across from mine. I mean, all I have to do is turn around anytime I want during the day to have an instant Captain Wentworth moment!
