Tomato, in Italian, is pomodoro. I learned today that there is something called The Pomodoro Technique. You can check out here. This has nothing to do with spaghetti sauce, but rather involves setting setting a kitchen timer for 25 minutes, then doing _______ (fill in the blank) until the timer goes off. There’s a Pomodoro book, Pomodoro courses, and even Pomodoro meet-ups -so, obviously, there’s a bit more to it than just setting a timer. But, just setting the timer was good enough for me today. I power-pomodored through cleaning this morning and practicing piano finger exercises this afternoon. I plan to “do a pomodoro” every time I need help settling down to a task. Since I don’t settle well, I’ll probably wear out my timer by February. No matter. It’ll give me an excuse to buy a cute little tomato one!
