    Summary

    She’s humming Blinded By the Light to herself when it happens, and it’s kind of ironic, really, because she’s tightening a bolt and just rolling into the chorus (revved up like a deuce has always made her snicker like a schoolboy) when the lights flicker and then pop, and at first she thinks the lights went out altogether, but no, what’s currently obliterating her vision is just the aftershock of the 100 watt bulb that she crammed into a 60 watt socket a few weeks ago that has only just now decided to leave this plane of existence.

    ...but then she leaves it, too.

    Summary

    The ten minutes that change her life begin with a professor sweeping haphazardly into the front of the room, smudged grey pantsuit, blazer fastened shut in the front by a single button hooked into the wrong hole and a binder clip. Her hair is gloriously, crazily curly and pinned on top of her head, where it spills over, and her glasses are charmingly crooked.

    “I’m Professor Gorin,” she says, “And I study subatomic particles. But if I could actually summarize my work in four words, it wouldn’t be worth doing.”
