teaching chemistry @ 11:21 am

I totally forgot to mention the fact that I got to teach Boy Scouts part of the Chemistry Merit badge on Saturday. Besides teh fact that the boys had an affinity to wanting to "blow stuff up", and the fact that one of the tasks that was put on the schedule among the teaching tasks was the task to pick me up, it went well. I was supposed to get there with one of my friends, but her car wouldn't start, so I went with someone else who wasn't sure how I was going to get in his truck. This particular person was amazed that I (a) made it up into his high truck in two seconds and (b) I didn't die along the way to the lab where we were teaching. I got there just in the nick of time to get the introduction stuff taught. There were in my opinion some future chemists in the room. One seventh grader wanted to add Dr. Pepper and Capri Sun and see what the PH was. Apparently, the mixture's PH is 3 (he was way impressed that we could figure that out really quickly, and it "tastes awesome). I wouldn't try it at home though if I were you. Everyone seemed to respect the people who were teaching, especially since we got them qualified to get their merit badges. I wish that there wasn't such a big deal weighted to getting me there, but what can you do?

That's all, unless I forget something else.

Hiya Ner,
I dunno if you know who I am, I'm Caitlin on The Zone BBS, and I stumbled across your journal and added ya, hope you don't mind. Cool about teaching Chemistry. I have a friend who's really into Science, and he loves blowin thigns up. hahaha about the pH thing with the Dr. Pepper and Caprisun. Lol!
Also, hope you don't mind, but I joined quite a few of the communities you're in. Didn't mean to copy you or anything, they jsut looked nifty.
Thanks! Cheers, and Happy Easter.
Caitlin
