My husband and I are different flavors of nerd. He’s the math, science, sci-fi kind of nerd, and I’m the history, sociology, linguistics type of nerd. We get along because we’re both psych nerds and both reading addicts, and because at the end of the day, apples and oranges might be different but they’re still both fruit.
Occasionally there is a disconnect though. Today is apparently “May the Fourth Be With You” Day, and a Big Deal in hubby’s world. Since I’m not the sci-fi addict he is, he is out with the boys tonight, enjoying an epic Star Wars marathon with his buddies.
I, on the other hand, am cozied up at home with my knitting and the latest issue of Interweave Knitting.
Right now I’m content to knit and read and watch the storms roll in, but maybe later I’ll drum up a nice period piece on Netflix. Because I can watch movies he hates too. So there.
