Attached vs. detached earlobes
MA and I were having a discussion last night about the difference between attached earlobes and detached earlobes. She apparently is very discriminatory against attached earlobes. They are disturbing to her. She shudders at the sight of them. It made me wonder if she would have been my friend if I had attached earlobes. She stated that she would probably still be friends with me, but would have a hard time keeping her eyes off my lobes.
Now I'm obsessed with earlobes. I find myself looking at everyone's ears now. I'm curious as to whether or not I'm a carrier of the attached earlobe gene. I'm sure I am. I guess there are worse genes to carry around - like sickle cell anemia or something. Then again, I'm not African American so I don't really have to worry about that.
Genes are funny things like that. Sometimes you get a recessive gene that presents itself out of nowhere and other times, it's all about the dominant genes. I'm all dominant except for my elbows. I have double jointed elbows. Weird, huh?
