When I used to drive my eldest daughter Madeline, now 29, to high school, she would always refer to me as ‘loser’.
“Hurry up loser; I’ll be late.”
“Why are you going the long way loser?”
“Don’t park too close loser, I don’t want my friends to see you.”
I would remind Madeline that, being my daughter, she would be carrying the ‘loser’ gene herself because it is hereditary. Madeline’s lightning fast response was “no loser; the loser gene skips a generation and losers always have cool kids”. At the time it was pretty hard to disagree with her logic.
So fast forward a few years and Madeline is married to a grasshopper fearing young man, Mitch, and they have two little boys, Sebastian and Theodore (my grandsons), aka Sebby and Theo. If Madeline’s theory of genetics is correct, Sebby and Theo have the loser gene. As you can imagine, this is a distressing thought for my cool daughter.
But what other genetic flaws have I passed on to the boys? Could they have Numcrunophobia?
Sebby’s results are in!
Sebby was asked two questions designed to uncover early signs of Numcrunophobia. The results were shocking; see for yourself.
Q1. What scares you the most?
Q2. What sound does an accountant make?
Will Theo have Numcrunophobia too? Stay tuned Numcrunophobes!
