“Genetic Bombshell”?

“Genetic Bombshell”?

Even more unsettling, at least two-thirds of Ketchum’s matches had Hispanic surnames. “At first I didn’t believe it,” she says. “But then I kept re-checking it, and I realized, oh my God, does this mean I’m . . . I’m Hispanic! All these years I thought I was German on my dad’s side, but all of a sudden it was dawning on me that my dad wasn’t my real dad and I had an entirely different ethnicity.”

I suppose to the ultra, almost certifiable mentally off-balance-hyper-racially-sensitive, this might be a “genetic bombshell.”

But to the rest who are not mentally challenged by such little things called reality, it would be a curious bit of family history worthy of a dry sense of humor talk on the front porch.

Do not pay attention to every word people say, or you may hear your servant cursing you- for you know in your heart that many times you yourself have cursed others. (Ecclesiastes 7:21-22)

Bye-bye, I leave you to  your “bombshell” of a life.

You’ve just lost a few bricks, but the foundation is still there. And you find some new bricks to replace the old ones.” She laughs at her own explanation. “It’s a silly metaphor, but it makes sense to me,” she says. “I’m still figuring out how to wedge those new bricks in there. But my wall isn’t collapsing anytime soon.
