My other half and I are both working from home today. I’m revising the first draft of a paper that I’m working on, and he’s doing remote network engineering. Last time I sat down with this paper, I realized that, if I plotted my data in a certain way, I would be able to see whether it really did match my model for what’s going on. I looked at it again today, and yes, it really is the perfect way to make the argument.
I was so pleased that I needed to share it. So I showed it to my husband. And then I tried to explain what I was modeling. After several versions of the explanation, he had a suggestion for improvement:
