News of Me Appears to Be Spreading

Have you ever received an e-mail from someone at work, usually a superior, that just sets you on edge, even if you have no idea what it's actually about?

Today I received just such a vague e-mail from one of the big-wigs at
Bob's Hogs, lets call her Jane. The e-mail read thusly:

Ensie, I have a matter that I would like to discuss with you. Can you please give me a call, I'd prefer not to do it via e-mail.

I called Jane immediately and, of course, got voicemail. I left a message and called her cell phone. No answer. I began to panic. What could it be about? Did I get busted for checking my blog on my new laptop? Nabbed for sending mean e-mails to a few people about the Director of Everything Ensie Does resigning yesterday? Is she going to tell me that I should give up, as I suck at my job? Maybe she just needed to explain why I wouldn't be a likely candidate for the job I want in the Seattle area. The possibilities were limitless!

Jane, fortunately, had not left for the day and returned my call pretty quickly. It's amazing the frenzy I had worked myself into in just a few short minutes.

Jane: "Hi Ensie. I have a strange question for you."

Me: "Sure, what do you need?"

Jane: "I was wondering if you would be interested in relocating in your current role to another area?"

Me: "Um, would this be the area I'm alreay likely to relocate to--the Pacific Northwest? I've been looking at a couple of positions there."

Jane: "Ah, no. I'm actually not at liberty to say where it is. I just wanted to know if you would be interested."

Me: "Hm. Unfortunately no. Due to some family health issues, I am only looking to move to one area of the country."

Jane: "OK."

Pleasantries were exchanged and we discussed a few other minor matters, but that was the whole point of the call.

Now I am desperate to know--where the hell is this job, and why did they want me for it?
