5 Reasons Marrying a Geek Was the Smartest Thing I Ever Did
|Hanging out with Christian Kidd (The Hates) and his wife Alexis at Comicpalooza 2013|
Sure, my wife loves traditional presents as well. She likes jewelry and nice dinners and shoes and stuff like that. Everyone does. That said, I have never seen her happier to receive a present than when I revealed matching hand-etched Tardis wine glasses I had personalized to read "We'll Never Stop" and "Running Together."
You don't get those moments from people whose hobbies are things like line dancing.
A Geek's Passion Can Change Your Life: When I met my wife I was a 19-year-old professional wrestling fan from East Houston with an imagination so small I honestly thought The Blair Witch Project was real.
Then I met The Future Wife With One F... and nothing was ever the same. She showed me Sandman and suddenly I could see a world of all possible gods and the nature of change and the power of dreams. We snuggled watching Twin Peaks, and I learned to see the world broken down into its images and symbols and meanings. I asked her what the hell My Neighbor Totoro was, and after watching it I knew the true definition of magic.
Literally every single thing I have written for you fine folks in the pixels of the Houston Press had its inception if the passionate geekery of the girl I fell in love with 13 years ago. I hope you find your own nerds to nuzzle, because it's the best thing in the world. Happy anniversary, Pookie.
