This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

Not much to add this week...
...as I'm not displaying any particularly damning or comedic traits of either of my parents, but what I have got of thiers can be summed up thusly:

DAD - sadly deceased now, but I inherited his temper, his hairline (though he never went bald which is reassuring), his appreciation of an honest day's work and a respectably-sized wang. At least I'm hoping that last one didn't come from my mum.

MUM - inherited her brains, her imagination, a small portion of her staggering artistic ability and her compassion (which has took a bit of a beating over the years, but I still have some left).

As for compulsions to acquire gardening equipment or thermal underwear, worry incessantly (oh, but my mum does that enough for the entire fucking world), admire the works of those artists involved in the 60's Liverpool sound (aside from the Beatles of course - how can you not?) or many other traits that are the hallmark of my mater and pater, I seem to be folllowing my own path on that score.
