al desko — calendar sheet as of October, 31st

al desko:
eating something, usually lunch,
at one’s desk.
The expression is a play on the Italian word al fresco,
which means outdoors or literally in the fresh (air).

Admit it.
While scrolling through this newsletter with one hand,

Glance down at your keyboard.
Can you see morsels of bread,
pieces of salad,
bits of dried-out salami?
Don’t worry.
You’re just one of millions of workers
who regularly eat al desko…
