He's really quite adorable, picking me up at the T-stop so I don't have to walk alone in an unfamiliar neighborhood. So when I saw him walking towards me yesterday, goofy smile and all, I couldn’t help but smile myself.
We grabbed dinner at a nice restaurant close by. At first, I felt a bit nervous because the (very) sparse menu offered few things I could eat. For all intents and purposes, I’m pretty much a vegetarian with a nut allergy. While I was a bit uncomfortable, I didn't want to let A know. The restaurant was so nice and I was just so happy to see him that I didn't want to ruin anything. Fortunately, the chef prepared the sweet potato casserole sans-almond garnish especially for me. The presentation was beautiful and the food delicious.
While I'm sure we could have spent a few more hours talking and laughing together, we had to cut the night short so A could finish a paper for work. Damn that boy, having legitimate excuses and everything- it’s so hard to get frustrated with him when I know he's making scientific discoveries and helping people!
This is one of my favorite photos. Becca and I had just dissected a sheep's brain (eww, but at the same time so cool!) for our 12th grade neuroscience class. I single handedly destroyed the cerebellum by ignoring the directions to "gently scrape" away at the outside of the brain with the knife. What can I say, it was taking too long, so I started digging. How was I supposed to know I'd destroy the whole thing? This is why I'm going into PR and not becoming a neurosuregon.
