You come up with an telephone analogy

You dig deep and come up with something truly inspired. “Imagine you’re playing a game of telephone.”

“What’s that,” asks Uncle Robert.

“It’s something the kids used to play,” your mom quiets him down.

“Now imagine that as your message gets passed from person to person there are certain words that get either mutated, deleted or inserted. Now certain combinations of these words can be incredibly dangerous except we don’t know which ones they are just yet but could one day regulate them.” You begin making your analogy way more ham fisted. It’s a wonderful analogy and you are really proud of yourself.

“Now we do exactly this to study how DNA gets changed up which might cause different diseases, see? That’s what I’m doing.”

You start nodding your head along with yourself and look across the room to see if your family understands you or not, you’re only seeing blank faces and you don’t know how much they’re receiving.

What do you do?
