Post-Office Party Embarrassment
Dear Annie: I am so embarrassed I could die. I've been working at this company for about a year and have always been attracted to my boss. (We're both single and unattached.) But I managed to keep it a secret - until last night. At our department's Christmas party, I drank kind of a lot. I don't usually drink at all, so it really went to my head. My boss asked me to dance - he was asking each of the women, not just me - but I guess I got carried away and made my feelings for him pretty obvious. My memory is a blur but I do recall holding on to him more closely than was called for, and not letting go after the music stopped. I also may have told him how I feel about him. Aaauuuggghhh!
Today, on top of a killer headache, I'm getting grins and nudges from co-workers, which is bad enough, but the worst part is, my boss seemed pretty frosty when I said "hi" as I came in this morning. Should I apologize to him? Will people ever forget about this? Should I quit my job? -Hiding in My Cubicle
