OK Bennett, you can release my BIG Y results now. When I saw my original release date of December 31, 2013, I was thrilled to know I would have something exciting to do on New Years Eve. After all I would have just finished the manuscript for NextGen Genealogy: The DNA Connection (see other post today) and I would be needing something to do.
Well, it turns out that you knew better than I did about what was best for me. You didn't want me to be conflicted between working on my book manuscript and interpreting my BIG Y results. That was thoughtful of you. The amended February 28th release date should have given me time to get the manuscript finished but it didn't. Well at least you released a 100 or so results then. Those guys must have been all caught up on their chores. But somehow you knew that NextGen Genealogy: The DNA Connection still needed my attention. Scary.
Then the due date got moved to March 28th. Surely I would be ready now. You released the results for a non-biologically related Dowell in our project but again none for me, for my late father-in-law or for my 6th cousin George. How did you know it wasn't time to release mine?
Last week you released Herb McDaniel's results. Herb is an STR match for me up to and including 111 markers. We are getting closer or are we?
Bennett I really need you to keep paying attention. You do remember don't you that I ordered this test on November 11, 2013 -- the first day you were taking orders and my current expected date is the 28th of last month.
The manuscript is almost finished and out the door. Tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest. Thank you for trying to simplify my life and genetic genealogy priorities but I think I can take it from here.
Please Bennett, free my SNPs. I want my BIG Y results and I want them NOW! I'm really not throwing a temper tantrum -- at least not yet.
