“Periodically,” (ha, get it?) my inner nerd comes out and plays. The perfect opportunity arose with Alyssa’s graduation party. Beautiful, bright and talented, Alyssa has quite the affinity for book learning and the sciences. Although I couldn’t fit the entire periodic table of elements into the cake box, it was close enough. Hope you enjoy my symbiotic semblance of sugar and science. PS. Good luck at Boston College; go, Lys, go!
