Yeah I know. Bizarre but true.
But as we are wont to do we riff on stuff like that sometimes. For example we were trying to figure out what traits a child would get from between the two of us. Skin color, eye color, hair color and so on. Typical Mendelian stuff. But then we’re both hairy bears.
So I was theorizing on if we had a little girl we’d have to braid her back hair. But goes even further. There’s an old picture of my great grandmother when she was 19 years old. She had REALLy stern look on her face – in fact I think my cousin inherited that trait. But I theorized maybe it’s because she had to shave her back. The family name unbastardized is Italian for fur. Yeah – a trait in the family that probably hung the name on us.
