Dear E,

Third Tuesday of the New Year. At work my Tuesdays became much lonelier this year, I went from having three interns to a sort of half intern in the afternoon. The day was restful as the long weekend -well half day on Monday- gave me a kind of two half Mondays in a row which was a lot less painful. The half intern is probably who I was as college student. He seems a little semi present always in and of out mentally. I got a lot done with fewer interns in the office. I made dinner with the left overs from last week’s meal- a poor man’s pesto with parsley, walnuts and can o’ Parmesan. Parsley gave the dish a sharper flavor and something of a struggle to decide what the actual consistency of the pesto should be. That’s my Tuesday
