Ira:  It’s amazing that everybody in your family works in the sciences.

Shirley:  Yeah, my parents are both in the social sciences. My father is a psychologist and my mother is an economist.

Ira:  And your sister Shonda?

Shirley:  She’s an astronomer. She initially wanted to study physics, but changed her mind. Her partner is a geologist.

Ira:  Is your brother also in astronomy?

Shirley:  No, he’s a biologist and his wife does chemistry research.

Ira:  How about your other brother? What does he do?

Shirley:  Um, we don’t . . . I mean he’s not involved in the social sciences, life sciences, or physical sciences.

Ira:  If I remember correctly, he was always good at math and liked computers. Is he in computer science?

Shirley:  No, he’s not. All right, he’s a writer, but we have every confidence that he’ll grow out of it.
