And Steve listened sympathetically and we had a good conversation. And then Steve said, "Well, you know, old King Solomon didn't have anything against taking a drink" - meaning Ecclesiastes - and I countered with, "yeah, but Proverbs 20:1!" and showed him the verse in the Bible I keep on my desk. And then we looked at 31:4-7 and chatted about that a bit.
So, it's funny who you open up to. Steve is the total opposite of me, but he was the one I ended up sharing with about my family background. We talked about basic things - food, drink, the Bible, family. And it was a chance for me to bond with people at work, and maybe humanize myself a bit, because I suspect I can sometimes seem cold and aloof to others.
