Bush Fire Hazard

Just because you're paranoid...

Our team has weekly meetings with our PI to discuss calibration and operations issues for the magnetometer. I spend a lot of time preparing for these meetings because she's incredibly busy and I know I have her ear for about 10 minutes before we've got to move on to the next order of business.

I walked into the meeting room today to find a white-haired man with a large mustache. My PI said, "Ah! You haven't met nanila, have you." The white-haired man, who happens to be an Extremely Important Man, proffered a hand and said, "No, but I know who she is."
