Biology Senior
By Aaron Mackey
Arizona Summer Wildcat
Wednesday July 16, 2003

Biology senior has never seen it rain cats and dogs, but likes to feed cacti to flies

WILDCAT: This is some pretty crazy weather. What do you think about the monsoon?

BITLER: I love it. It's great.

WILDCAT: You think it's about to rain cats and dogs on us?

BITLER: Heck yeah.

WILDCAT: Speaking of cats and dogs, have you ever seen them literally fall from the sky?

BITLER: Umm not to my knowledge, no.

WILDCAT: Lord knows I have. What about the lightning? Are you worried about getting struck by lightning?

BITLER: Nope.

WILDCAT: No? I've been struck 17 times. You've never been struck before?

BITLER: No, but I can tell you have.

WILDCAT: Funny, that's odd that you mention that. So what are you doing on campus?

BITLER: I work at a lab on the south side of campus.

WILDCAT: What do you do in the lab?

BITLER: I'm a research assistant, so I do a whole bunch of stuff.

WILDCAT: Neat! Are there research animals there?

BITLER: A lot of the stuff is fruit flies.

WILDCAT: So no pigs, no cats, no dogs?

BITLER: Umm no. The most bizarre thing is they do cactus flies and stuff. That's about it.

WILDCAT: You test cactus?

BITLER: That's what the fruit flies eat.

WILDCAT: Wow, that's really weird.
