The Genetics Of Fun Is Not Fun

| Romantic | March 12, 2015

(I’m currently pregnant, and I’m tucking my boyfriend into bed for the night. My eyes are grey, and his are blue.)

Me: “I wonder if our baby will have grey eyes or blue eyes.”

Boyfriend: “Maybe both. Maybe brown!”

Me: “That’s highly unlikely without a genetic coding failure as neither of us have brown eyes.”

Boyfriend: “But my mom does!”

Me: “As does my dad. It’s possible but still highly unlikely.”

(I go off on a several minute explanation about how eye colour is determined.)

Me: “See honey? Genetics are fun!”

Boyfriend: *stares at me unblinking* “OKAY, GOODNIGHT!” *rolls over and pretends to snore*
