Watch This Spot
Taste of Summer

The Latte Boy

A catchy-tune kind of way to start your day . . .

 

This summer, Tom and I are complete empty-nesters.

Erin lives in Pittsburgh now, and. . .

Brian stayed on campus for the summer, doing lab research full time

Last Friday, summer research came to an end -- and to commemorate the occasion, there was a poster session and lab tour.

I dropped in, along with my Mom and Dad, to see what Brian had been up to in the lab for the last 8 weeks.  Brian enjoyed explaining his work to us (we tried our best to understand*).

And then he gave us a comprehensive tour of his lab . . .

and showed us all kinds of nifty equipment!

Signs like this . . .

were everywhere!  So . . .

we obliged.

It was great fun for us to see where Brian's been spending most of his time this summer!

But.

Not ALL of his time.

Because he also works here . . .

Yep.  Brian performs chemistry in a traditional lab setting by day, and caffeinated chemistry as a barista by night!

Brian, the Lab-Latte Boy. . .

We love him, we love him, we love him!

So much fun! We should get a glimpse of the work environment ourselves this week. WY sends you it's best! ;-)

How wonderful and I always love seeing pictures of your handsome son. Seriously, we need to get him and Hannah together.

Your children are brainiacs, but then, I guess that's no surprise given his parental genes. Now Brian has a skill he can fall back on no matter what happens. :)

Hmmm. Where do you suppose he meets more girls, at the lab or at the coffee shop?

Vicki

I've a soft spot for baristas!
