I also had a fun call from Jenny in the afternoon, just sort of catching up from the previous week and why – along with most everyone else's – I'd not dug my way back to her earlier email from when I was on the road. So that gave me a chance to answer on the phone, which is always more fun than typing anyway. She made me laugh as she described some of her frustration with the new tutoring job she's been doing, and having to teach reading instead of math, which it seems everyone there assumes no one wants to touch except some math professor they have on retainer, while all the while she's craving to do math instead. I'd pay money to listen to Jenny grouse – actually, Julie, too – and so she just had me laughing as she hammed up her annoyance: she has so much more verve to her annoyance than I do.
A good day for friends.
