It is my daughter’s birthday and I wish I didn’t have to go to Boston for my mythology conference today. But because I am leaving for Boston right after my classes are done, we celebrated her birthday Wednesday evening. I made her strawberry shortcake cupcakesd7mnths with fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream–she is like me — not much of a sweet tooth. I hope you like your gift, honey, and that you will have a good birthday with dad and your friends in the evening. Good luck at soccer. I will talk to you when I get to Boston. See you Sunday. Love you and a very happy sixteenth birthday! Mama.16birthday

Later. 8:30pm update.

I left school as soon as all the stuff was done and now I am waiting for my 9:15 flight to Boston.  My daughter went for her driver’s permit test today and she now has the permit. Congratulations, honey! K let her drive to soccer today–drive carefully, okay?

I ate this tomato mozzarella sandwich that I had bought at Panera before I left State College. Once upon a time it was a good sandwich, but after all this time, it is just a sad sorry excuse of a whatever. Anyway. I bought some spicy dried mango thingies from one of these airport kiosk outfits — it is some business out of Denver called Nutty and Fruity — and it is very good. It reminds me of how we dry mango with chillies in Kerala. I am looking forward to eating some good seafood in Boston. Boston has great seafood. We like Boston — good intellectual and working class city. It always reminds me of Calcutta.

Happy birthday, my sweetie! Talk to you tomorrow. Enjoy your birthday with your friends. Love you, mama.
