You'll put an eye out!

If you have been following me from the beginning, and even if you haven't, you may know that it was a Microbiology class during summer term that was the catalyst for my weight loss journey. It wasn't anything I learned in the class as I actually had to drop it during the first week.

No, it was an ill fitting lab coat that was necessary for my labs. Ill fitting is actually saying it nicely - it DIDN'T fit. When I buttoned the top button it gave the appearance that in a split second the button may launch itself across the room and hit a fellow student in the eye. A mental picture of walking into the class and fellow students ducking and covering, quivering in fear from this weapon of mass destruction sitting on my chest flashed as I looked in the mirror. Obviously, the dangers and liability of this potential catastrophe was enough to make any sane person feel obligated to dismiss themselves from the class. But, that was just one button - the others wouldn't remotely come close to meeting their adjacent holes - the bottom button had at least a 10 inch gap between it and its hole.

Without the proper protection from the microbes, one cannot take the lab and without the lab one cannot take the class. So, I soon found myself with that summer off.

Tonight, was my first night in Microbiology. My lab coat FITS!!!!! I have never been so thrilled to wear something in all my life as I am this lab coat. I did it!! I'm happy to report, no one in MCB2010 is in danger of losing an eye this term. At least not from a lab coat button injury.

Now, to hit the books.
