I work with nerds. I always have. I’m sort of a nerd groupie.
Yesterday at lunch my nerds were discussing really boring things like phones and PHP. In an attempt to change the subject I asked, “So, how about them sports?”
They looked at me in disgust knowing full well I was going to require a conversation about sports. WHICH I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, but I felt like having normal boy talk may be fun.
We talked about college bowl games, which The Kid informed us are a really big deal–something about a lot of money, and mountain west recognition. YAWN.
Things quickly took a turn for the worse when we started discussing bowl sponsorship. Nerds can turn anything back into phone talk. I braced myself for a boredom overload by finding entertainment in eating my sugar-free pudding cup in four whole bites.
