This week I'm proud to introduce Sonia Singh. Her word was Chemistry:
Chemistry, n. The art and science of attraction, proficiency in the latter being the death of the former.
About Sonia: Sonia is a research chemist at Amgen where she works on projects which, if successful, will produce the next generation of medicine for rheumatoid arthritis and if unsuccessful, male enhancement.
Born in Amritsar, Punjab, India and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Sonia is a redneck on two continents. For three years my ex, and for eight the Desi to my Lucy, Ms. Singh is in the Guiness Book of World Records for swallowing churlishness. Sonia and I met in 1995 when she was an intern at The Carter Center. An impeachment hearing later, that story wasn't as cute as it once had been. She is mother to my dogs, Willie and Walela, who say "Good job, Mom! Bring bones! Dad doesn't feed us properly."
Sonia lives in Santa Monica, California, practices Ayengar yoga and vegetarianism and is a registered Democrat. Central casting assures us that she made each of these decisions independent from any stereotype. Sonia is widely admired for her cleverness and kindness although usually not at the same time.
How to be a future guest on this site: Just send an email to dpascover at mac dot com. On a future Wednesday, after posting that week's guest, I'll send you an email with a word to define. You'll be expected to return your definition along with a graphic representing either your definition or yourself by the following Saturday. The only rules are no profanity and no novels, please. And whatever I make up at the last minute. Oh, and rabbit! rabbit!
