My parents recently sold our house and are in the process of going through box after box of “memories.” It’s hard to throw away memories, but are they actually valuable if they’re stored away in some box you’ll only ever open every 10 or 20 years when you change houses? It’s a tough call. Anyway, my mom found her old college I.D card from when she was 19 or 20, and I can see the family resemblance (though in different ways) in my siblings and I. Then my dad got jealous and e-mailed me a picture of him when he was about the same age. So which genes are stronger? The Perilla genes or the Van Hemeryck genes?
It wasn’t easy to find a picture of me, my sister and my brother with the same serious expression around the same age, but I did my best:
Can you see the family resemblance? I’d say we all inherited the Perilla nose.
