Better Than Brains Or Beauty
Before anyone sends me an email about the bizarre length of Manny's tongue, you should know that it has absolutely nothing to do with me. He must get it from his father, that lizard like ability to stretch it out and touch the tip of it to his nose. My mother and every single one of my siblings can do this, but somehow that gene skipped my talent pool. It's a shame because I was relying on it as a back up skill should I ever need to join the circus or apply for a government funded position.
Because of things like this I worry that I don't have a lot to offer our offspring.
But then I remember that I was the one who taught Manny to tie the stems of maraschino cherries in a knot with his mouth closed.
So there's that.
