the dough boy

the dough boy has been moved to an office near mine. within earshot.

i can hear him.

for someone who seemed _so_ quiet before, he is surprisingly calling attention to himself.

will he smile and say hello now in the halls? or will there be no change?

he surprised us all by being one of the most interested people in my tufte presentation. he brought a garish, color-coded map of golfing sites for critique. no one else understood tufte enough going in to do that.

that was months ago… still no more than the barest acknowlegement in the halls.
