Because we are geeks, Vyx and I wore geeky t-shirts while out shopping today. At the bus stop as we were heading home for the day, some random guy complimented one of our shirt choices. Okay, cool, that’s fine.
He then had to tell us about how he started reading comics in the 80s. (Okay, the 90s, he amended.) And how he had #1 issues of X-Men and what-have-you. And how he loved stories about this, that, and the other thing. And. And.
And then, miracle of miracles, the bus arrived.
Dudes: You can just say you appreciate a thing and let it go at that. If you feel the need to make a big deal about your geek cred past that? You’re not impressing me, you’re certainly not impressing Vyx, you’re just causing us both to count the minutes until we can be far, far away from you.
