The Acquisition - 5

After the interviews we went to a dark, anonymous Midtown bar. Chris had martinis; Dave and I drank whisky. We tried to reflect upon the day's peculiar events, their absurdities and implications.

Only a few employees knew about the looming acquisition – the three of us, the CEO, some higher-ups on the West Coast. In the office the following day, everyone sat and tapped away at their computers like normal. Except nothing was normal anymore.
