NOW she tells me

"Of course, at this stage I'm not going to ask you to classify the divisions, phyla, classes, or species of these bacteria, fungi, and viruses. You need to know things like 'the bacteria are prokaryotes'."

Surrounded by about 350 flashcards, I think "great".

Call it biology major syndrome (even though I was a physical anthropology major, it's the same principle but with more monkeys). I figure, since I've known bacteria were prokaryotes for so long I don't remember when I first learned it, NATURALLY I thought she wants me to spot memorize a thousand different illustrative examples of bacteria.

Given that, I do hope it stays this way, and I hope path follows. "What's this slide?" "Uh, broken kidney?" "Very good!"
