Amita couldn't help but overhear the girlish whispers of young co-eds who were pointing at a man standing near the Beckman Auditorium, their gaze following the clearly very handsome individual as he wandered around the area.

Rolling her eyes at them, she walked over and gave him a friendly wave.

"Hi! You look lost. Can I help you find something? Somewhere?"

He graced her with a blinding smile and she could see how the girls had found him so delightful to look at.

"No, I'm good. I'm just here to pick up my brother-in-law. He told me to wait by the big white round building." He gestured to the nearby decorative pool. "I dig this pool though! That twisty design on the bottom reminds me of the Tetris game on my phone!"

"That twisty design?" she said, bemused. "It's actually a DNA double helix." At his blank stare she had to bite back a retort of laughter. "Good luck finding your brother-in-law," she managed, backing away.

As she passed the gaggle of giggling girls, one whispered conspiratorially, "Is he really that hot?"

"Forget about him," she chuckled. "He wouldn't know a gene if his X kicked him in the Y."

Confession
Title from the Dire Straits song of the same name.

Yes, Beckman Auditorium and the Cal Tech Gene Pool are real places and the pool really does have a DNA tile design.

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

I love it when you write Amita...
This is so true. And it makes me wish for Cal Tech. Or at least Pie n' Burger.

Brava!

The thing I like is just how dumb this guy seems to be. So pretty, yet so vacant. Ah well, not all of them can be math geniuses.

Amita would never fall for a guy anything less than a genius, no matter how pretty. :)
