- Richard: Richard is Hawesome by birth.
Richard has always been Hawesome, apparently.
- Rachel: Rachel is Hawesome by marriage.
Rachel began the long, slow journey towards Hawesomeness when she first began dating Richard on July 13, 2000. They met through a shared appreciation for coffee and paychecks. After 11 off/on, up/down, left/right, and otherwise adventurous and exciting years, they married on July 13, 2011, at which time Richard declared that Rachel was “Hawesome by proxy”.
- Jacob: Jacob is Hawesome by birth.
Being in the direct line of Hawesomeness (and by-proxy-Hawesomeness), Jacob has always been Hawesome, as it is a dominant gene.
