Today is a busy day for me. I designed myself a crazy 2 in 1 experiment (😝) and was working in the lab from the morning before even have the chance to greet Le Supervisor.
I got myself a short break during the lunch time to sip tea and have some rest in the office before the next round. Phew… 🍵🍘
Le Supervisor saw me entering our room from the pantry (he was having lunch with the lab members). He dashed in and stood up right in front of me with a piece of printed material in his hand 📄, before I even have time to sit down. 😮
Ok, he wants me to rephrase and restructure his messy write up for his recently accepted paper because he has “fed up with his inability to come out with something better” 😂.
I got his task solved before he finished his lunch. He read on it: “Wow, this sounds a lot more better! Thank you so much!!! 🙏 I told you I need you. ”
I replied with a smile. 😊
Later then I was working on my data analysis, and he interrupted me: “Angelyn, I need you! Can you come over and read on this email?”
It’s a Japanese mail from another researcher from the main campus enquiring on some reports. 📚
“Do you know what he wants from me?”
“Yeah, I remember you prepared similar documents and sent to S sensei before.”
“S sensei? Who?”
“Sxxxxxxxxvvbg Kbbvcgjbcf sensei! Search your mail and just forward it. 😉”
– Searched, found, forwarded 👍-
He raised his hands: “Phew, thank you! I don’t remember* anything. Angelyn, you have saved me! I really need you!” 🙏
Ok, ok. I know, I know. You don’t have to keep repeating it. 😝
I flipped my hand and was like “Yea…” *not impressed 😂*.
I think it’s appropriate to reply: “Yeah, I need you too!“, but it sounds too romantic. 😂 I might vomit right after I say it, so… I skip! 😛
*of course you don’t remember, I was the one who wrote all of them! 😂
