I had almost never seen S.L.’s face light up like that. I went in to see him today about the chapters I’ve been working on, and we ended up brainstorming about the important points of my dissertation. He was actually really excited about one of my findings that I had thought was too mundane to go into. In fact, its the same thing I’ve been saying since I got back from Nicaragua, but today I managed to put it into a put it into a catchy phrase that would apparently make a great title for a meetings paper. I still have a lot of work to do sorting all this out, but it was pretty rewarding to see S.L. get excited about what I’ve been toiling away on for months. Juvenile foraging proficiency aside, it all comes down to the mom, and baby monkeys need mommas who eat right. Stay tuned to (one day) see how this all relates to life history evolution.
