My Turn at Pretend Play



Chris and I were visiting my aunt in Qingdao (青島) back in 2004. Yes, where the Tsingtao Brewery (Tsingtao Beer) is based.

My aunt is a marine biologist and this is her office. The picture below is of me looking into a microscope at some foraminifera. I won’t pretend to know what they are or even attempt to simplify and explain what I think they are. What you see next to me are some models my aunt had made based on the actual dimensions of the microscopic foraminifera. They look like tiny shells of various shapes and patterns.

I had always wanted to have a photo of me doing something that every day Joe does not get to do. Pity I forgot to take off my jacket and don a white lab gown before I had this picture taken!

Hey, I think that leather looks much cooler than any white lab coat!!

I wish I had the chance to see that. I'm sure it was really interesting. The models are pretty neat as well.

I bet that beer is good. You look adorable even though I can't see your not looking at the camera. Of course I already know you are amazingly beautiful, with kids as adorable as you have. It sure is fun to pretend isn't it?

Wanda said...

Oh, I don't know...there's something very cool about wearing leather in a lab. Such a renegade.

Love the bonzai behind you.

You look as if you knew what you were doing! Good acting! ;)

Run DMT said...

Very cool! I agree. You do look like you know what you are doing, but a lab coat would definitely make you look even more like a pro. ;-)

You look like you know what you are doing.

Lindy said...

That picture is really neat and you totally look like you know exactly what's going on!

Alicia said...

At first, I thought that was your aunt, and I was going to say that she was the coolest looking marine biologist I've seen!

Michelle said...

Lab coat or not, it is a cool shot. Your Aunt had a really neat office. :)

Happy WW!

Nezzy said...

Ya look like a pro. Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving and I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am to have you in my blog world.

Have a great day!!!
