Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be getting that call back from Starbucks.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    No idea what you were trying to make! Oh well, I never worry about it anyway when I go there. I always get the same thing, no matter what and it doesn’t involve any patterns. Of course, that doesn’t mean they don’t mess up once in a while, or…sometimes put their fingers inside the cup. God I hate that!

      It was my morning coffee. You know, the super fancy kind that comes out of a Keurig and is promptly doctored up with milk and sugar. There really wasn’t anything more to it, which is why I found it hilarious that I had accidentally created a terrifying smiley face when I poured in the milk.
