"You don't blink much do you?" We're in the middle of the room. He got a corner booth with her yesterday. " I have big eyes," I say, blinking casually. "I can't get over how familiar you are," he says. I laugh. I should hope so. I ask about his work. His eyes foxtrot when he talks about reconstituting lost species. I ask about the people he works with. He mentions a couple men. "No women? You think women get enough procreation in their daily lives?" He laughs, "That's what Natalie says. She's the only woman in the lab." Natalie.
