1. The fact that he said he wanted to dream about exponents one night about a month ago.
2. His latest joke: "How can you tell a male chromosome from a female chromosome?" Answer: "You pull down it's genes!"

Landing on the Moon
A world map
A human genome poster

Yup, his inner geek is emerging. I suppose that it was inevitable, given who his parents are. I only hope that we can guide him through his teenage years with encouragement and dignity. As a bumper sticker I once saw says:

How does your inner geek come out?
Any advice on how to get this wonderfully whacky kid through the teenage years?
