Every morning I go through the same regimen. I open the office door, put my things down on my desk and go see my next door neighbor at work. We have been buddies for a long time. I go in and either shake his hand or do one of those “fist bump” things that athletes do; I think that it is appropriate for “mathletes” to do this also.
We generally will spend 3-5 minutes talking and discussing what went on with our children the night before. We analyze family goings on like Monday morning quarterbacks analyze football games after they have been played.
