Tuesday Titters: If you’re not the homework service, I’m not answering the door

by Janie Jones

Knock, knock!

Who’s there?


Canoe who?

Canoe help me with my homework?


For some reason my seminar instructor is ramming us through the preparation process.  I have to have my outline for my Lyme disease seminar ready tomorrow.  It is homework I actually enjoy, but for pity’s sake, this is an educational process not a freakin’ race.  Seriously.  Research into a thorough review of studies investigating new Lyme vaccination methods is not gained overnight, especially when I have three other classes all vying for homework time.

I’m thinking of the title:

Lyme vaccines are worth our time


If Fido can be vaccinated against Lyme disease, why can’t his best friend?

It is so much fun being a part of the Lyme research group at the medical school.  I actually was able to answer the question when the boss asked, “Are any of you familiar with DNA barcoding?”  In fact, I had just read a very lengthy research paper on it.  So I was able to answer intelligibly enough to earn a “That’s exactly right, Janie.”

I’m still glowing.  It is awesome to finally feel you are where you belong.  Now if only I didn’t have to spend 30 hours a week buried in homework.
