My corporate work asked for a “funny picture of your pet”. So I sent them a picture of Kiki, my sourdough starter, who enjoys being fed and taking long walks. My boss followed up with me to make sure I was doing ok.
@ejk at least sourdough starters are alive. If you had shown a volleyball with a face drawn on it, that would have been more concerning.
@ejk That's excellent. My starter is named Elmer and I refer to it as "my microbiotic son". My actual children are grumpy about this for some reason.
@ejk I am totally following you because I love your sense of humor and I saw your bio and I'm PhD Physics and I feel like we could be friends. Or feel free to tell me to go away.
@ejk This joak seems more evidence that you're living your best life than anything worrying, tbh. Strong work.
