It’s not easy being married to a geek. Lloyd’s so quiet – always tappity-tapping on his computer keyboard, and when he does talk, I can’t understand anything he says. He’s interested in politics, which puts me right to sleep. Then there are all the computery-math-geeky things he does – reading books about equations and programming and chess. He reads BOOKS about CHESS. Good grief! I don’t understand any of the computer stuff at all. Did you know that a ‘server’ is not a waiter? And a wireless router is not a woodworking tool?
I like tv. shows and making a mess. We’ve come to a compromise. When he starts talking like a grown-up and my eyes glaze over, we draw this symbol in the air.
