The Knack

Remember the blocks? That cursed engineer block?
My daughter is doomed to a life of "utter social ineptitude."
I blame my father.

You know, since you keep bringing this up you'll be cursed with the dread EE. Electrical Engineer

Nope. Grandpa didn't cause this. Neither did Great Grandpa. We may have "the knack", but we didn't pass it on.... at least not to Kaylee. Have proof positive. Just look at Kaylee's father. That boy couldn't turn a screw with a whole box full of screwdrivers. You're going to have to look somewhere else for the root cause. Maybe it's the water... The air? Then again, Rachel's pretty good at fixing things. H-m-m-m-m!?

It must be a recessive gene - I got lucky and it skipped me. But I'm obviously a carrier.

The recessive gene that you have has recessed your hair nearly to extinction.

No - that's an abundance of testosterone in my system. I'm just too much of a man to have hair.

At least too much of a man to have hair on your head...

I have finally realized the blessings of being a step-father.. my father was a Machinist Mate & my Uncle Tom was a MM also(NAVY- engineering type-one each). Thank GOD for small favors! Kaylee will not have to face the the dreaded Engineering "triple threat", Amen
