I was just thinking | whatsandrathinks

Deep blue eyes. Thanks, Dad.

Excessive worrying. Thanks, Mom. Hmm… and Dad.

Dark circles under my eyes. Thanks, Dad.

Deep love for coffee. Thanks, Mom and Dad.

Late night cravings for potato chips. Thanks, Mom.

Love of all things cheese. Thanks, Dad.

Smarty pants. Thanks, Dad.

Talent for baking. Thanks, Mom.

Creativity. Thanks, Mom.

Big boobs. Thanks, Grandma.

But why didn’t I get Mom’s green thumb, Mom’s outgoing personality or Dad’s ambition? Oh well. At least I got that special gift from Grandma.


p.s.— This was a rough one. Better late than never, I guess.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  2. Genetics are a funny thing. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but it doesn’t hit every branch on the way down. 😃

  4. There’s a couple of interesting points about this post. For the life of me I just can’t put my finger on them!

    I’m not sure who I got my “gift” from, but it’s not gardening. Thumb-related, but with respect to size not colour.

    The undisclosed genetic benefactor of one little one will have to go unthanked.

    Oh well, at least I have that sense of humour from my uncle Frank.
