My DNA Analysis Kit Arrives

genetic testing kit

I’m having my DNA analyzed.

Turns out
the time it takes to generate a saliva sample
for these people
is roughly the same amount of time it takes my husband to shower.
I waited to hear the water go on,
a small effort on my part to retain at least some sense of mystery,
even after 40 years,
even in the midst of a culture where mystery has fallen into disrepute,
everyone putting everything out there for all the world to see.

Oh, good gracious, I’ve just talked myself out of posting this.
Well, not quite. 🙂

I should hear back in about 10 weeks,
just in time for the start of the genetics course.
