Today I revealed my grace by dropping an entire tray of plants I'm screening. In front of Bossman, who was there to help me score some ambiguous potential mutants. Very embarrassing! I managed to catch the tray in mid-air, but the catch itself dislodged some onto the floor. What a mess!
Thankfully the Bossman didn't say anything critical; he just mentioned it was lucky that the few unlucky ones that hit the floor were from the less-interesting genotype.
Also, the tray bit me! I have a scratch at the base of my thumb, which was of course covered in dirt. Time to get out the Neosporin.
Ah, the life of a clumsy scientist is never boring. At least I've never been involved in a centrifuge accident.
