Hello from Day 23 of the California reopening. The county supervisor says it’s time to reopen the classrooms because it’s safe. This is in advance of two drinking holidays. Purim is next week, and then St. Patrick’s Day is in about a month. Will the bars reopen? Superspreading yayyyy!
Yesterday I missed ACTUATOR (again), AUTOCRAT, COCONUT, CONCUR, OUTRO, TOUCAN, TOUT, TUTU, and UNTO.

NURTURANT: A thing that provides emotional and physical nourishment and care given to someone.
