Line too late

I was out at the front desk of my library with a co-worker, a long time substitute clerk. She was telling me about how for Christmas her husband and her were getting each other DNA tests. They thought it would be fun to learn their genetic history, and they certainly didn't need anything else. She said her grown children found this gift intriguing and wished they were getting a DNA test too. I said it would be interesting to test the accuracy of the test by having her and her husband get it and then having their kids get it and seeing how perfectly it matched up.

She said "Oh. But my husband is not their father."

I so wish now I replied in a scandalized whisper "Does he know?"

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
