If you read this regularly you may know – I really apologize, you should find something better to read if you know this – that I occasionally will post a podcast or a clip of audio of something that hit me in the emotional core out of nowhere while I’m working, running, lifting weights, stretching – that kind of thing.

It was in the opening sequence of this Radio Lab episode interviewing Annie Druyan who thought it’d be a good idea to talk in an absurdly youthful and bubbly girl voice about falling in love with Carl Sagan where I might overhear it and forgivably start crying all of the sudden.
“For keeps.” What am I, made of stone?
