Guess he showed me.

Dylan has been trying to "curl his tongue" for a month now. He saw some friends at preschool demonstrating this trick and was determined to acquire the skill.

But at some point in my life, I was told that "curling your tongue" is genetic. I've always thought it was one of those things you could either do right away, or not do at all. For some reason I had it in my mind that you couldn't "teach" yourself to curl your tongue.

Dylan didn't believe that and kept trying. After a month of trial and error:

Tongue-curling SUCCESS! Who knew?

In other Dylan news....Imagine any quaint, stereotypical idea you've ever heard about "a boy and his dog", multiply it times 10, and that's how happy Dylan is to have Raider.

He's growing on me too.

Rock on Dylan!

...and welcome to the family, Raider. Looking forward to a few blog posts from you. ;)

I heard that curling your tongue and FLIPPING your tongue was genetic during a homework assignment to see who could do it in our family. I taught myself to flip my tongue! Anything can be aquired! *;o)

Hmph. I always thought it was genetic too. But then you and I were in the same school system. Wonder what else they taught us that wasn't true...Do you think maybe people didn't really come from monkeys??

Kudos, Dill Pickle!
