This week's contestants are the precious couple pictured below.
Looking at this picture is the first time I've realized how much she looks like her mother.
Get over it, kid, we're ALL destined to look like our mothers.
They really ARE fun people, but they don't like to show it in photographs. Here's another one from a family reunion a couple of years ago.
This is my niece and her
These are two incredibly smart human beings. Their future children are destined to be geniuses (geniusi?). While they both spent a very short time at my alma mater (endearing them to me forever), they both subsequently transferred to a DIFFERENT university that has the name Georgia in it, but unfortunately ends with Tech. Having endeared themselves to me forever already, though, I couldn't hold it against them. I think he's majoring in (and I know I'm going to get this wrong, sweet niece, so don't hesitate to correct me) something with the words "bio" and "medical" and "physics" all contained in the name. I think she's majoring in ... majoring.
They are both witty, probably the quality I most admire in people, because it implies not only intelligence but also a sense of humor. They like to make fun of the same people I do, for the same reasons. They probably make fun of ME when I'm not there, but I would prefer to remain blissfully ignorant.
And while we're talking about special people...
You should see the little guy on the other end of these feet.
(Forgive me...I have a thing for baby feet.)
