Stuff Only A Geek Would KnowI might as well start off by admitting that I'm a geek and that I'm great at saying the wrong thing. I can't help it. Odd is what I am. It's in every fiber of my being.
I'm a n00b on EP, and I just realized the very first story I wrote displays my geekiness, so I might as well be up front about it. I wrote a story about being in a tornado, but then I included the fact that my town has six tornado sirens. It takes a real geek to know how many tornado sirens their town has, and where they're located, and the company that made them.
I even watch TV for geeks. My TV watching diet is filled with CSI, Criminal Minds, Bones, NCIS, etc. Non geeks just watch sitcoms, but for me listening to the laugh track after every single line that isn't even remotely funny would probably drive me nuts and cause me to pick up a chair and smash the TV.
I'm a lot of fun at parties. I can dance, but I can't carry on a conversation, so I'm not quite to full geekdom. I'm almost there. So, when I'm dancing I dance with the non geeks, but then I go and talk to the other geeks.
I'm not the biggest geek around. My ex husband had just about everyone beat on geekiness. He was a rocket scientist. I'm not being sarcastic, he really was a rocket scientist. That was his profession. He could spend hours talking about science, physics, and aerospace, but that's all he could talk about. Our marriage didn't last. We never had sex, because he didn't want to. For him getting married was an item on his bucket list and when we got married he forgot all about me, until I didn't put the silverware in the correct drawer because it had to be in order ba
It's a blessing to find other geeks, but sometimes, as in the case of my ex, it's a curse when we find each other.
