I’m an OPEC grant winner! Not really.

While I would love to receive a grant to study chocolate or the effects of mixed dietary preferences in the modern family, I don’t see winning one unless I apply.  I received notification that I was selected to receive a pretty hefty OPEC grants, but I am so not qualified to study or develop any  project related to petroleum.  Seriously, I am generally a homebody and leave the driving to others.

My notes are italicized.
