Susan and I worked together in 2005, in a situation that was…trying. Let’s just say that we became firm foxhole friends. She is one of those people (and this topic has been on my mind the past week) who is so strong and emotionally healthy that she does not flinch in the face of others’ vulnerabilities. She’s also got a downright sick sense of humor, which is really why we get along so well. If you’ve never found a diamond of a friend like this in any of your workplaces, I am sorry for you but still happy for me.
