I learned about this exhibit from Mary Roach's book Stiff (an AMAZING book). So when I saw it was coming to Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), I was totally excited. The Florida Anatomical Board tried to have it shut down. MOSI responded with a big f- you and opened the exhibit two days early to record breaking crowds. Friday there was a front page article on the exhibit. I hungrily read the comments from the museam goers and tried to make out the grainy newspaper pictures. After I got home, I brought the paper to Dean.
I said, "Ummmm, you know how I go to all the baseball games you want to go to with you? Well, there's this one thing..."
"Sure," he said, "what is it?"
I held the article out to him. "I REALLY want to go see this."
"Do you know what it is?"
"Yeah, it's an exhibit at MOSI."
"Do you know what it's about?"
"It says 'Bodies.' That sounds cool."
"Don't you want to read the article about it?"
"No thanks. I'm sure I'll figure it out when we get there."
Yes. Yes he will.
