And then Yuan took a picture of herself in it -- then Kevin -- then Josh -- these pictures got propograted to our lab group WeChat -- and a lab fad was born. Soon Josh, Yuan, I and others were championing everyone to get their picture taken in "THE hat." My goal was to make a collage, send it to Khalid and demand his picture.
However, that turned out not to be necessary. At recruitment weekend, Yuan spilled the beans by accident -- the joke came out -- and Khalid agreed to wear it. HA HA! I felt so victorious -- it was awesome. Such fun we had at recruitment weekend -- more photos of that are coming soon. For now, enjoy these.
Note: The hammers are what we use to crush dry ice -- Yuan and Kevin were going to show me where the dry ice was and help me get some. They said the hammers and the hat together made them look Russian. LOL
