The Lesson for Today?
Running on concrete is baaad. Unfortunately, I remembered this the hard way tonight at work. Cheryl had gone ahead to the trash compactor and I was attempting to catch up with her. I ended up close to kissing the pavement. At least my left hand took the brunt of it (my right was holding the trash), although I also somehow knocked a chunk of rubber off my left shoe. I'm not having the best week in the world here.
I did have a good day in lab, though. A good day is defined as me not screwing anything up, and I got out of there a full hour early. When we get to have partners, mine basically does everything, since I have an unfortunate tendency to knock the test tubes and spill half our products. But I've only broken one thing so far this semester!
I forgot to mention the Whoppers. To be precise, they are Whoppers in the shape of robins' eggs. Spring is coming, and so is its candy! Although it seems to be a phenomenon here to wear shorts even when it's 30 degrees out. I love the South and it's 70 degree winter days as much as anyone, but do try to adjust on those rare February days where it dips below 50 and spare the rest of us the sight. This is of course why I would freeze to death in a lot of y'all's hometowns- it's actually possible to dress like that even on days we consider cold. Fun, huh?
