The crackle of the open fire could just be heard above the soft, lazy music that added warmth to the dimly-lit room, as we sipped our glasses of wine and just relaxed, knowing we had nowhere else to rush off to. Then, as if from afar, I heard the muffled words "where are you at with that relocation transaction?". I turned to my manager with a sigh, and suddenly, the spell was broken... :-(
