Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
On December 14th, 2021, My Beloved and I took a DNA test through 23 And Me. This involved not drinking for half an hour, spitting in a plastic tube, and sending it off to a lab for a fee. There is not much to read about it in the link below, but you can see how the day built up to the moment of shameless slobber.
We downloaded the application for 23 and me and got started. Social networking is important to finding relatives so I reached out to my Beloved.
She was smart enough to ignore it.
Well, the results are in. I have a few notables I would like to share.
So, they broke down the whereabouts of folks with similar DNA and I am mostly British and Irish with a smattering of French, German and Scandinavian.
I suppose that makes me an All American mutt, and thats ok with me.
I don’t know what to say to this one but I have always been a hard gainer. I lose the genetic lottery here.
This one is true but it is hard to tell with all the Campfires burning the brow.
There is more.
Ask my Beloved, my kids, and anyone close to me. Please wake me from a distance. I react a bit on occasion. So true.
This one surprised me. I have chosen to jump put of a perfectly good airplane
My my my…..
Then this was the clincher.
It was fun reading my results and comparing them to my Beloved’s. Some of the assessments were dangerously accurate.
Do I recommend it?
Have you ever been to a carnival and paid up for a turkey leg or gone to a restaurant for the experience?
It’s kinda like that.
Have any of you out there tried 23 and Me? What do you think?
