July 10, 2012

The email read: “Dear Students, Faculty and Staff, What a momentous day for Johns Hopkins! Congratulations to our own Adam G. Riess, who today was awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics.” Who the hell is that? What did he do? I didn't know. But I felt proud. I ain't his dad. I ain't his student. I forgot his name by now. But I felt proud as heck. I even texted my mom as if I won the nobel prize (I rarely text my mom by the way. Sorry mother). He is the man who made me text my mother.
