I don’t think I have ever written about how much Esther likes to interpretive dance, but she does. She’ll do it to anything. No seriously. Anything. Commercials, yup. Real music, sure. Made up beat-boxing, definately.

The only thing I could do is shoot off an email to said Merlin Mann, which conveyed this.


After listening to your weekly wrap up podcast, I have to say that I loved your podcasts formats. My favorite was the interpretive dance. My wife interpretive dances to everything, she could possibly help. Let me know.


We shall see.
