So, on Tuesday night we had a special tour. 3 of us volunteered for it (Me, Sam & Dana). It was pretty fun.
But most importantly…
….I have a new best friend.
When we went into the Chemistry and Physics building, I attempted to tell our tour about how we have a team that makes parts for the Particle Accelerator in Switzerland. I said something along the lines of “…I wish I knew more about it…”
“Oooh! Ohhh! I know!”
I looked over and the guy that was working at the planetarium that night was literally jumping up and down waving his arms around. His name is Ian. We’re best friends. He just doesn’t know it quiitteeee yet.
He described it as this: “I work on that thing! It’s the biggest piece of machinery in the world! It’s like watching cars run right into each other! That’s what we do! With protons!”
And yes…he said all of that with exclamation marks at the ends. He was really exciting. Brittney is basically ready to hire him as our Honorary Enthusiast.
And just in case you were wondering…I love my job.
