WHEN THEY DEVELOP A SWAB TEST FOR IDENTIFYING SUPREME COURT JUSTICES, GIVE US A CALL

Tom Farrey of ESPN Magazine recently reported on having his toddler's saliva analyzed for signs of genetic inclination for various sports (in Australia! Where they do that kind of thing! Just to stay competitive in the Olympics!). After several pages, Farrey discovers that, lacking the genetic disposition for "fast-twitch" muscles that so many explosive athletes share, his son may be doomed to the press box. We suspect Small Fellow would receive the same analysis, given his parents' general lack of (non-gaseous) explosiveness, but Tiny Girl, especially when it comes time to be put to bed, twitches all over the place, so maybe she's the next Mia Hamm.
