God's Programming

Papá was very excited because they delivered a big new machine to his lab. An automatic DNA analyzer - it cost thousands and thousands of dollars.

I asked Papa how you use it – he laughed.

“Who knows” – that’s what he said. “There’s a special technician who operates it. I just send off a test-tube and they send me back the DNA sequence!”

I was supposed to be showing him about information bits and there was my dad telling me about his brand new DNA analyzer. I thought he might be interested in me for once. But, he’s kind of distracted when I tell him.

It always comes back to his work.

I guess genetics is kind of interesting. NOT!

I wish my dad would notice that I don’t care enough to want to study it?
