I realized as I sat at my desk and read T.’s research assignment for his BIO 622 class that this dish of lentil and tuna salad, this redux lunch that I so smartly packed to work yesterday morning complete with two additional snacks because I would like to move to the many-small-meals strategy for eating so that I can become a champion long distance runner, this dish of lentil and tuna salad would be the 2,000th time I ate lunch and did my best to remember it. Such a big fat round number. Want to curl around it, squeeze it, happy that it’s mine.
