I came home to a card from my Aunt and Uncle yesterday. I had no idea what it was but knowing the card-sending time table of my family, I figured it was from last Christmas. Nope…it was way more awesome and definitely made my day.
My Uncle Bob is one of the people that’s very responsible for getting me into science. I remember him taking me to planetariums and the American Museum of Natural History when I was younger. So he thought of me, the token physicist in the family, when CERN made its Higgs announcement and he wanted to celebrate “Higgs Boson Day”. And the proper way to celebrate is apparently by having a beer. I won’t argue with that!
