1 in 1,000

While walking through Silver Dollar City Girl Child made friends with a unique young man...
Then, during our visit to Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum she (sorta) made the acquaintance of another with the same kind of genes....


Keep in mind her hand is nearly the same size as mine.

Our fave facts gleaned from such an oddly entertaining collection were these three:


First, 1 in 3 have the genetic ability to curl their tongue.
Big Shooter and Girl Child are the 2 or 3 of that equation. In fact, the faces she makes in trying to accomplish this feat are comical.


Second, only 1 in 100 can turn their tongue over.

Girl and I can turn our tongues over one way. Boy Child can turn it both ways...Weirdo.

And last, 1 in 1,000 can fold their tongues back.
That would be our very own Girl Child. She's the 1 in a 1,000.
She can't curl it, but she can fold it! Super Weirdo.
Where are you in the standings?

Love Note to my Big Shooter: Sweet Baby Jesus!! What were you thinking?!?
A little preview of tomorrow...

I can curl my husband's toes by curling my tongue elsewhere on his body. He certainly appreciates that talent. :)

Lie if you must, but please tell me that's not Buck Snort with the bungee harness up his crack? What is with that man's obsession with neoprene?
