Visible Peculiarities: None

So I got that going for me. Which is nice.

Rather, I had that going for me at one point.

Bump was organizing files this weekend, and in my feeble attempts to “help” (i.e. throw away five sheets of paper and make him find places to file the rest of the garbage I feel the need to keep), I came across this nugget. It was in a stack of papers my parents had given me that included my baptism records and elementary school fingerprints. The document contains some immunization history, and I think it’s my visa for the flight from Seoul to Minneapolis 34 years ago.
And to think, all this time I've been blaming Lumpyhead’s hairline on Bump.

Mom, is that you?

Em said...

LHM, literally the sweetest picture. Certainly the sweetest one of you : ). And still no visible peculiarities!
Nope, those peculiarities are all on the inside.

I can't believe you were helping Bump throw paper away.

Totally cute baby photo, but the part that made me laugh was your occupation. Ok, it's really not that funny, I just want that one today. It's been a crappy week at the office.

Em -- Have you seen her lately. HUGE visible pecularity! Right in front! Like she swallowed a basketball. Seriously peculiar.

Lumpyhead looks exactly like you!

Hahahaha! That is too cute! CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!

wow! When was the last time you had seen that? I hope you filed it away in a special place.
This is exactly why I can never throw away anything of DISL's. If he can't find something it's because I threw it away not because he has a big pile of messy papers. Whatever.

Are you sure Lumpyhead isn't just a very small clone? If he wasn't kind of blonde I would swear that Bump wasn't involved in making him.

I'm bummed that MAW took my visible peculiarities joke.

I can't believe you were unemployed. You loser.

Wow, were you ever cute! And you look so sweet and calm and in awe of the whole visa-procurement process.

I see you were unemployed back then.

Slacker baby.

Somewhat unrelated, but the visible pecularities bit reminded me of an adoption story that a work colleague recently told.

She's adopted. When the agency called her parents to tell them the good news, they said, "We have a baby for you - but there is one problem ...."

Wanna guess what the "problem" was? Red hair.
