Strange metaphors

A snippet of a recent conversation:

Chera: I submitted Elena’s thesis today. I feel like a thesis midwife. This is the third thesis I’ve helped deliver.

F.: Don’t worry. You’re pregnant now with your own thesis, and you will deliver it very soon.

Chera: Does this mean I can eat anything I want?

F.: Only what’s good for the thesis…

So far this includes dark chocolate Kit Kats, copious amounts of tea, and lots of yoghurt.
