night conversations

Today I was giving a lab meeting, so I spent the whole last night working on it. N. wanted to be nice and supportive so he was keeping me company for some time and even tried to understand my slides :) One of them was called "life of a worm (and a scientist)" and contained this photo:

The photo sparkled an idea in my mind to have braids done again. N. commented on my idea with an unexpected question: "Why do you want to torture me?" Initially, I thought that he was simply afraid that his conservative parents would get a heart attack upon seeing a white woman with braids. But later he clarified that he does not like me in braids as they are not nice in touch... I did not know that hair softness is so important for guys... ;)
