Three years of dedication were rewarded when Kimberley graduated cum laude on Tuesday 15 April 2014. Although she turned 21 last year, I now have the sombre feeling she has reached adulthood and moved into the next phase of her life. Kimberley may be disappointed at missing summa cum laude by half a percent but we couldn’t be prouder just the way it is.
The solemn dedication with which she carried out her first documented scientific experiment twenty years ago, involving the application of two nostrils to a mud puddle, has developed with the times but I live in dread of her nostrils being applied to any source material in the biofuels lab.
Onwards and upwards, Mighty Mouse, but not by blowing up the lab during Honours.
