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.


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.
