The Boss of Calm

22 Dec

My Boss is the epitome of calm. He has this calm aura about him… whether he is panicking or just thinking – he exudes nothing but calm.

Coincidentally, I am the opposite.  I am anything but CALM. I am easily excited, I panic easy, I am full of enthusiasm and it all shows.

I still remember the day when I was first interviewed by my “Boss”.  He would ask a question and pause… Me being the typical “must-fill-the-silence” kinda person kept blabbering until my brains separated my mind from my tongue.  Suddenly, I was split into two – the mind wasn’t able to make sense of the words that my tongue and mouth were forming… and yet my tongue couldn’t take the hint and kept at it.

Fast forward two months… My boss is still the calm self and I still the opposite.  Fortunately, I have become great buddies with another hyperactive colleague.  She and I always speak about him and how calm he ALWAYS is.  She has been hatching plans to shake him off his calm but so far she hasn’t succeeded yet.

Maybe because I am anything but calm, I admire my boss even more.
