I found myself whispering to my wife as we walked together on campus. I had to keep what I said secret, keep it safe. No one could hear, otherwise they would know WHAT A BIG NERD I AM.
The secret: Battlestar Galactica.
I reviewed the storyline with my wife so that we could start watching season 3 together. I got overexcited as I told her the plot, and got kind of emotional too. Then I realized what I was saying, so I lowered my voice. I imagined I might run into cool people who would think less of me if they heard. Imaginary wedgies tickled my crack.
My wife has been too busy with reality to join me in fantasy land. I'm already halfway through season 3.
Other reasons I'm a nerd:
- I've seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- And every episode of Angel, a spinoff of Buffy
- I enjoy comic books
- I pick my nose in secret
