"I liked the fact that she had no idea who I was," she wrote. "She rarely followed sports, so she never saw me on ESPN… and her office mates at the time watched a different morning show."

"While I’m looking forward to being with my wonderful colleagues again, I’m also a bit apprehensive which I understand many have felt in returning to the workplace."
