Something I realized last week: everybody I've dated for longer than a month or two was a faculty brat. (As am I, of course.) That is, admittedly, a small sample size, but it's also a small population to choose from.

I may write about this eventually on the main blog; I'm still thinking it through. Certainly, despite the small sample size, this isn't a coincidence. With (at least?) two causes: clearly that's my type (or at least one of my types), but I'm also sure that the selection process works in the other way, that faculty brats are the most likely to appreciate my considerable peculiarities.

And: class runs deep.
