Three generations of dry wit
Recently, three generations of the Seidman family came the StoryCorps booth: Arnold Seidman, 96, Robert Seidman, 54, and Michael Seidman, 17. The three live together in San Diego. “We all have this sarcastic humor that’s passed on from generation to generation,” said Michael. “Yup,” said Michael’s father Robert. “Dry, dryer, and dryest…” said Robert’s father Arnold, pointing to his grandson, his son, and then himself.
In this photo Michael is listening in with headphones as his grandfather recounts how he proposed to his wife during WWII via a letter.
