The Eighth Pain of Christmas

    Newer Older

    The eighth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me,


    Call the waaambulance.

    It's interesting how our brains interpret images of people. We instantly know something's wrong when a baby has a small head or a grown man has a huge head. I made my ears and nose smaller (those grow bigger and bigger every year through your 70s), eyes bigger, and head bigger.

    When I took Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, you learn that the head and brain stem are the first thing to develop, doesn't matter whether it's a baby or a chick or a squirrel. I think we automatically have that "aww, cute baby" response, and it's funny because even if you're not a Biology major like I am, you can still tell when something's a baby.

    They teach you in drawing class that to draw a baby, you must make the body length only 3 heads long, whereas an adult would have a height of 10-11 heads.

    I hope I'm not one of those parents one day that lets my spoiled brat have anything they want.

    You can't really see unless in the large size, but I'm crying -- profusely (thanks, synthetic tears!).

      "Biology? Wow!!! THAT WAS AN INTERESTING SUBJECT FOR AN MAT Science major like me in School of Advanced Education....

      Babies got their DNA from their parents according to the genes being inherited... if the mother has a disease transferred to the baby carried in her womb, the baby will have abnormalities with accordance to the medicine being intake nor the father being with from their historical resemblance..."-Donnabella C.
