I don’t know how this happened, because I thought I retired from assistant life, but somehow I was roped into preparing several Zoom classes for Rosie today. Apparently, she’s been teaching astrophysics on the side, in addition to being Connor’s #1 gal pal. A lot of it was totally over my head, but Rosie seemed to know what she was talking about. She was actually pretty nice to me and didn’t throw anything or swat at me when I couldn’t get the equations right.
All this is to say that Rosie is very excited about going back to school next month. She asked me to make her a celebratory collar, and the specs were down to the millimeter. It was a very different experience compared to collaborating with Tabs, which makes sense; she’s a different cat. With Tabs, fashion design was more of an organic couture process, whereas Rosie’s plans were detailed and precise.
Apparently, numbers are her forte. Who knew? I learn something new about her every day. I somehow convinced her to take these pictures, even though she told me, repeatedly, “I’m not a model. I’m an astrophysicist!” I’m trying to convince her that she can do both.
