It irritates me to no end when I speak to the kids and they ignore me. Regrettably, this happens regularly. So much so, that my inner banshee is often exposed. I’m sure my neighbors love it.

“LIAM/NORA/HENRY! DID YOU HEAR ME?”

Although my focus group is admittedly small, from the data I’ve collected thus far, I’ve extrapolated that the Discriminating Auditory Disorder presents earlier in X/Y chromosome holders than in those who possess the double X.

Regardless of the delayed manifestation, friends with teenage daughters have assured me that the disorder intensifies exponentially in X/X chromosome holders beginning around age 12.

X/X holders may outgrow this affliction. However, X/Y holders are always at risk of becoming full-fledged DADs who will unknowingly pass the trait along to their progeny.
