Here are a few of the 'runners up':

From Katie Mundy in Greenwood, SC: Ether dissolves fat. CLEAR…drip…YELLOW…drip…GOLDEN. Evaporate. Weigh.

From Jennifer Turpin in Athens, GA: Life is like a box of random hexamers, You never know what you're going to get. I pop them into my thermocycler, wait for the magical hum, smile and sit.

From Sherry Bohn in Frederick, MD: The rush of air - WHOOSH! HEPA protected we are, Science advances!
