The Act Sci 3596 project group I’m in has been trudging along slowly and today we were to meet but I knew no one was ready.  I sent an email saying I had some sort of personal tragedy involving a Civil War era cannon and a dead goldfish.  Throughout the remainder of the day each member individually approached me saying “I wasn’t ready anyway”.  SUCK IT, EVERYONE WHO SAID I’D NEVER HELP SOMEONE ELSE SAVE FACE.
