"I study insects.""What’s your favorite insect?""The honeybee.""Tell me something interesting about the honeybee." "Honeybees will leave their hive once a year to mate. Even though the queen has plenty of males in her own hive, she will only mate with the males of another hive, which insures genetic variation. Honeybees can also sense the magnetic field of the earth, meaning they can fly several kilometers from their hive and find their way back home."

"I have too much energy. I’m learning to channel it instead of letting it burn me.""How does it burn you?""It can keep me from focusing.

"I didn’t get married until I was 50. I think it finally happened because I stopped thinking it was possible.""How do you mean?""Before I gave up, I was putting so much pressure on myself that I’d immediately be considering and measuring every man I’d meet. It’s not natural to begin a relationship with such a long term view. When I met my husband, I wasn’t looking past that afternoon."
