A shock to the system--when the real world and "Olam HaBlog" collide

Today, I typed an announcement to be posted throughout my office building notifying our staff and visitors of the death of a staff member's father, and providing details concerning the funeral and shiva (roughly translated, the period when the mourners receive condolence visitors). Imagine my shock when I was making the rounds of the blogs and discovered that the deceased is the grandfather of a Jewish blogger's spouse. Baruch dayan emet--Blessed is the true Judge.

I'm now incredibly curious where you work, though I can guess... (Delete this if you wish.)

Ezzie, as long as I make sure that no one in my office sees this post, I don't think I need to delete your comment. Since no one who doesn't work in my office will be able to determine the identity of the staff member, I don't think I'm "outing" myself as a blogger at the office as long as I keep this post out of sight, and it's likely that you're still the only blogger who can figure out where I work.
