I caught up with a friend who I hadn't seen in a while and started chatting with her awesome kids. Her daughter was wearing an awesome dress with a popsicle pattern; before I could stop myself I complimented her on it. I try to never start conversations with girls by commenting on their appearances so I quickly moved to asking about what good books they'd both read recently.
We got to chatting some more and I was talking about my lab work and how I use a lot of test tubes. She jumped on the number I mentioned and in that fantastic, hyperbolic way kids speak and said, "I've never seen that many test tubes in my whole life!"
It got me thinking about how many test tubes I do use. I counted 52 for my most recent experiment and mentioned this to her mom on facebook. Her mom replied that her daughter referred to me as Test Tube Lady. Which, yes, yes I am.
