1.1 I participated in the experiments with Dr. Olivier in the past weeks. One of the procedures was to insert a catheter to a dog’s radial artery, which was super challenging. For the first experiment, Dr. Olivier claimed but failed to find the radial artery three times in a row. After which he thought he found it one more time like, “I think this is it. I have already three false positives. I can’t afford a fourth one…”
1.2 There was another guy observing the experiment. Just to open a conversation, I asked him, “Are you a professor?” He was like, “Yeah. Why? I don’t look like a professor?” “No. You look too smart to be a professor.” I saved it nicely.
2. We were having dinner and getting ready to play soccer in the house team the other day. Amy wanna know which position I play by asking, “What are you gonna be, Barton?” I was like, “I am gonna be the star of the game…”
(Eventually we lost the game by 1:5 and I was not the star of the game at all.)
3. My research was not going well recently. We were hanging out in the living room, when Jordan asked what kind of research I was doing. I told him I am doing research in cardiovascular signal processing. He was like, “That’s really cool, man.” I was like, “Yeah… But it would be much cooler if it went well…”
Watch out! Uncle Gao is here!
