Oh my. My daughter just called to tell me her best friend's won a half a million dollar grant to study some scientific something or another.

And R. wrote the grant proposal for her.

Man, they've come a long way since they met in third grade and spent all their time obsessing over Battle of the Books.


  1. Susan! What *wonderful* news! Please let her know her mother's virtual friend is just thrilled for her. Congratulations a million times!

    (Why, look at all of those exclamation marks!)

  2. Thank you! I will! (See, I can use them, too!)

  3. How exciting! You must be so proud! (more exclamation points!)

  4. *sigh* My mom describes my research as "some scientific something or another" as well.... ;)
