As an undergrad, I held a job as a line cook on nights and weekends.  The class that relentlessly punished me was Cell Biology.  The auditorium was full of international pre-med students.  Clearly I was in way over my head. But I signed up, paid and was determined to tread water. In an effort to survive the tidal wave of reading assignments, I’d scan my scientific text until alerted by the kitchen printer’s hum.  When we were slammed, that book was nowhere to be found.  But on Monday nights, that baby was open, getting toasty under the heat lamps. You could tell my Executive Chef wasn’t thrilled with my…multi-tasking.  My time was on his dime, after all.  By Laura Cook Newman
