She may have gotten that (and her ability to concentrate on a task) from her father. 

Perhaps two semi-dysfunctional people can  have functional offspring. 


Or, at least, one who tries harder.

Raising the question of how to judge functionality.
For starters, able to live independently, or in a workable relationship.

It's relative. It should mean that the person can function in the way he/she wants. A person can be functional without being in a relationship or live with their parents. However, if the person somehow prevents themselves from living the way they want to because of physical or mental issues, then I guess they should work towards becoming er.. "functional".

The word makes me think of training.. nowadays it seems all exercises are judged on the basis of their "functionality", meaning that they correspond to movements you make in the "real" world. I guess somehow this could be twisted to mean that a person is functional if they can live their lives out in the world without somehow being prevented by their own bodies and minds.

Um I guess this is not very complex but I make it seem like it. I'm tired. Too many pink robots today.
