Top 5 Reasons Why My Lack of Baking Skills Are Not My Fault, Proven Through Other Genetic Abnormalities
Evidence #2: The "Everything in its Place" Gene
Everyone in my family has the "neat" gene. Not me, however. I seem incapable of keeping a pristine living environment, no matter how much it bothers me. I try very hard to keep things clean, but always fail miserably. This is noticed by everyone in my family and is the main reason I live in constant fear of "drop-in" visitors.
Evidence #3: The "Working-Out-Is-Fun" Gene
It isn't. Not really. I like Latin Fusion, but that is much more like dancing and very little like a regular workout. I just don't like to run on a treadmill, lift weights or do push-ups. BORING. However, my mom, dad and sister think it is great and do it almost every day.
Evidence #4: The "Amazing Comeback" Gene
My sister, mom and dad (and husband, though he is thankfully of no blood relation) have the ability to think of amazing comebacks on the fly. I do not possess this gene at all. I stammer, turn red and usually back away, floundering for something - anything - to say. I'll eventually think of the perfect comeback . . . 20 minutes later.
|Let's face it. |
We all know I got this gene.
