Here's the story ... decide for yourself about the "mystical moment" bit.
Once upon a time, a very curious genie (me) was asked by her thoughtful husband, "What would you like for Christmas?" She responded, "A DNA kit (or two), of course!" And so began the adventure back in December 2015. For Christmas last year, I was given two types of DNA tests:
- Autosomal DNA (atDNA) testing - goes back about 5 generations
- Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) testing - mother's line (mother's mother's mother's mother, etc.)
Now, here are the mystical bits ... a few weeks back on the day before Mother's Day, we took my lovely Mum out for dinner. I was planning to tell Mum about the results of my mitochondrial DNA test over dinner. After all, my DNA is her DNA. However, the restaurant was too noisy, so I delayed telling her for the timebeing. After dinner we decided to find somewhere that sold ice cream or gelato. A quick search on Google found Bellingen Gelato at 688 Darling St, Rozelle, not that far from where we had dinner. So, this is where we ended up after dinner.
