Ego boost

Well, I've finished 2/3 of my North American speaking tour (as my boss likes to call it), and it is actually nice to spend some time in lab after all of that traveling. I do enjoy visiting new places quite a bit though, almost as much as I enjoy giving seminars. No, I am not being facetious--under the right conditions I actually enjoy public speaking. As long as I have had a chance to prepare and am interested in the subject (in this case, my research), it is kind of fun to watch an audience respond and react to what I am saying. Anyways, my PI got an interesting email after I had returned from one of of my speaking events. The general gist of the is shown below, with my comments shown in italics:

"Mr. H...(my boss who is most certainly deserving of a Prof. or at least a Dr. in front of his name),

I did not found the email address of A (referring to me)... who gave remarkably interesting talk regarding enzyme Y (go me!!!)....Can you please forward this email to Dr. N (once again, referring to me)? We are very excited about the possibility of a collaboration....

X (eager grad student who got some details a little mixed up)

Luckily my PI has a good sense of humor, and we joked about the whole thing.....It is kind of fun when someone thinks that you are deserving of a "Dr." title when you don't actually have one yet.

But don't worry, I'm not letting it go to my head.
