momma said there'd be days like this
okay, so first, why? why?! is there a package of breastmilk storage bags on top of the microwave at work?
so, i see this package as i'm heating up my lunch, naturally, and it doesn't strike me as odd initially. i'm like, oh, breastfeeding, that's cool. i'm a proponent of breastfeeding.
but then, i start to process this. there are only two or three labs which use this microwave. and then there is the cleaning lady who basically uses the room with the microwave and frig as her little office. she has her stuff on the tables that the microwave and toaster oven also occupy. so, i'm thinking this must be hers? but why she is pumping at work? first, i don't even think she has a baby. she's gotta be at least 45 and i haven't noticed any appearing and disappearing belly lumps. and, even if she has a baby, why is she pumping at work?! where is she doing it, and why? don't you pump at home in order to leave the milk there? and if you aren't pumping here, why are you bringing in breastmilk storage bags?
secondly, i've dropped two significant things today.
one was a cuvette. for you non-spec people, this is a relatively expensive piece of equipment (at least for my ghetto lab), of which, about four have been broken by various members of my lab over the last three months.
the second thing i dropped was my lunch. all over my desk. yeah. great, huh?
and i spent half my weekend (and the previous week) trying to resolve my friends' life crises.
and there was no tofu this weekend. pretty sad, isn't it?
and, i've apparently morphed into a full-on "chick", according to more than one person.
