At times things feel like a test. A good test, an unknown test, a test that will explain something later, a test that will reveal surprising results, a test that is just plain fun. Due to a genetic splicing experiment between two people, my parents, I am equal parts implementor of MAKING THINGS WORK and EXPERIMENTS. Sometimes the functional part comes first, but I find when the experiment part comes first it leads to a function I never would have imagined. For example, a new way to cook an egg.
