A successful brainwashing

I have had an exceedingly bright undergrad working in my lab over the summer. This week is her last before heading off to her home institution. Today she told me she didn't want to leave. She wants to stay and try to figure out what the enigmatic protein she's been working with really does.

Yes!!!!!!!!!! (Odyssey pumps fist in air)



Of course, she'll head back to her home at the end of the week. Maybe she'll come back next summer...

Admit it!! You were puting something in her coffee weren't you?! Seriously, that must have been a good feeling!!

A great feeling! And no, I did not spike her coffee. It was the chocolate-filled croissants I brought in for our weekly lab breakfast. :-)

Nice one. My interns all ran for the hills as soon as their time was up ... even though I brought them chocolate several times.
