Hmmm, I’m not sure this is my favorite photo since it brings back somewhat painful memories, but it did also make me laugh remembering what I used to wake up early on research mornings to do.
That is a giant roll of bologna. Bright pink and easy to slice through, although sometimes is makes you want to gag a little because there’s just so much of it. On mornings that I ran workshops (for research) in schools, I would wake up early to walk down to the bakery on the corner with my plastic bags and exact change and buy however many rolls I needed for the day. Then I’d return home to slice bologna, cut rolls, butter them, and make bologna sandwiches for the students. I’d also mix up bottles of a Kool-Aid type drink.
The funnier part is that usually by the time the workshops were over, I was pretty hungry for a bologna sandwich and bright purple juice!
