At the lab

A few days ago I had to go to the lab at 9pm to prepare some antibody mixes for the next day experiments. And I asked D to come with me to keep me company.

Needless to say he brought his baby (aka the Canon). And that was a very smart choice since his degree of boredom would have gone through the roof without his favorite toy.

And I had this entire thing going on in my head about D and I being bench buddies and preparing antibody mixes together. Yeah! It’s as realistic as me being a Starcraft fan!

So of course when I asked "don’t you want to label my Eppendorf tubes?" D said "hmmm… lemme think! NO!". I think it was because the very thought of being in a room where DNA and cells and RNA, not to mention lung tissue [gasp!] are being manipulated on a daily basis made him cringe.

There’s just no way of getting some people even remotely interested in genetics! Although D did show some interest in a pipette or at least the mechanics of it. So there is still hope for him! I’m not giving up!!!

Here are the pictures he took that night.

So D said that if he has to (and I mean absolutely has to) come to the lab with me again, there’s no way he’s leaving the house without a laptop! Go figure, I never saw that coming!
