Twenty Minute Lab = Perfect Morning

This is Naiya. She wonders why I was home so early today, and why I have had so much time to spend tugging on a rope with her. Well, it's because my Analytical Chemistry lab was only twenty minutes long today!! That's right, just twenty minutes of GC Mass Spectroscopy peak analysis, and I was out the door. As a result, I've gotten to spend an awesome morning with the pup. I was also able to do a bunch of dishes for the wife, which made her extra happy when she stopped in between classes. Follow that up with making and eating six cheesy scrambled eggs with toast and strawberry jam, and you've got a morning as close to perfect as they come.

Time to go to work soon, but I'll leave you with Savant Syndrome Fact #4:

In the book The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks wrote about twin autistic savant brothers named John and Michael. Even though they were unable to take care of themselves, they could intuitively calculate the day of the week for any date over a 40,000 year period.
