  I'm not quite a geezer yet.  Getting there, but not  Um, what were we discussing?  How's the kids.  Are there waffles?
I worry about ALZ.

My parents both had it.

And so did my mother.

Wouldn't care if he did. He was the Y-donor, nothing more.

OK, you have me confused.    And no disrespect.  But when you said your "parents both had it" and "so did my mother" , I thought you making some joke.  I don't understand the genetics, but I did not mean to offend and I apologize.

If it is not too awkward, could you explain?  I hope I'm not the only person who doesn't quite get what you are refferring to.

Oh wait, I think I got it.  I'm dense sometimes.

Health history is the one place you should care about the Y-donor.

That part was the joke, it makes doctors laugh. However, my male parent never earned the title "father". I told people I came from a one-parent home all my life. He lived there with my mother until he died of stupidity at age 64. So I call him "the Y-donor", because he had no other positive involvement with me. Negative involvement is another story.

Oh, I know he had prostate cancer, heart problems, diabetes, ALZ, and some other shit.

Figures, I DIDN'T understand.  I was thinking surrogate mother.  But "not good" dad, I get that too.  I probably should just shut up and not post sometimes...

No biggie. He was an non-entity to me when I was seven. After he threw me into a lake and drove off.

I had learned to swim the previous summer, not that he would have known. And there was a guy in a boat tied up to the bridge where we stopped, I paddled over to him.

Nobody believe my version of the story. He didn't bother telling one.
