DNA Test

Eric was very self conscious about his prominent brow ridge. It really agitated him and so he decided to send a saliva sample to one of those DNA testing sites.

Eric was eagerly awaiting the report from the testing site in the mail. He had requested that they send him a detailed document of his ancestry. Even though he knew his appearance was genetic, inherited from some primordial relative through the vastness of time, he wanted to better understand his ancestry.

When he read the analysis, he scratched his forehead in dismay. He was shocked to find out that he was more Neanderthal than Homo sapiens.

    I guess sometimes you actually CAN tell a book by its cover. LOL
    Very well played with those prompt words.

    I thought his knuckles scraping on the ground may have been a give-away as well. Great use of all the prompts Fandango. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

      According to my DNA analysis, I have less than 2% Neanderthal DNA!

    I don’t remember, for sure, exactly what words he used… Clinton (the Bill one) has said [I saw him in an interview] he has an unusually high genetic make-up of something stupid.

    Well that is something I didn’t think the DNA tests would show.
