Mine isn't an ObDWJ, but I always longed for an eccentric intellectual 
family where it's usual to discuss weird scientific facts at the dinner 
table and outsiders can come and soak up culture (as I did in a 
boyfriend's house; unfortunately he was an evangelical atheist and we 
didn't match); and here we are being exactly that kind of family for 
our kids' friends.
