Sometimes I think I'm adopted. Ted, my lab partner from freshman bio, is adopted. Nobody knew because he never talks about it and he looks EXACTLY like his parents. Really. You know that website where you can take two people's pix and do this digital mashup and come up with what their child would look like? If you did that with Ted's mom & dad, you'd get Ted. Glasses & all.
One time I did that with pix of me and Logan but the baby was kind of unattractive so I deleted it.
With me and my parents, it's crazy -- we look kind of alike, but emotionally and everything, we're completely different. I'm not even sure we share any DNA -- except the basic stuff that makes you a human instead of a chimp, I don't even think we speak the same language. Sometimes when I talk, they just stare at me, like I just switched to Swahili or something. Occasionally, they get it when I speak slowly enough. It's exhausting.
That's why I made it one of my 16 Wishes. When I'm sixteen, my parents will finally understand me.
A gal can dream.
