I just have to take a minute to share something that happened to me today. I *know* I am getting older and I *know* I have gained some weight but please...have I really changed that much? Apparently, the answer must be YES!
I was minding my own business and going to turn in time cards for the students in our lab which necessitated a walk to another building. I got in the elevator and went down to the first floor where the elevator door opened. As the door opened there was a woman standing there (that I had known for over 15 years but had not seen in a long time) She said, "HI" so I said "HI" back. She then asked me what lab I worked in, which I thought was odd since she should know that already, but I told her. Then she looked me straight in the eyes and asked me if I knew Me! I looked at her like she was crazy and told her "I am _____". So obviously I must look drastically different. Arrrrghhh. How depressing! I know this is not nice but I hope she felt bad cuz it made me feel bad too.
On a brighter note Annemiek sent me a photo she took in Italy of Pam supermarcato! I have supermarkets named after me there. I guess the Italians still love me! Thanks for the photo Annemiek, you ROCK!
Have a great Friday night!!
