This was totally not what was on my mind this morning until I had a text conversation with one of my best friends. In the time span of 3 minutes we had 2 obscure sci-fi late 70′s and 80′s references. I’m not sure many people can pull that off (well, I think the 4th Frog’s husband might be able to pull it off).
You see my friend has been selling off a lot of her household items so, naturally, I asked if she was going to be moving back home. Her response was a sad one as she is not able to move back home yet, and she said she felt like Scott Bakula hoping that every jump would take her closer to home. I lost it when she texted that, not only because I was HOOKED on “Quantum Leap” (thanks, Mom!), but because simultaneously I was sending her a text about our youngest’s (her Godson) First Communion being scheduled for May 4th next year (yes, she is someone that I have to give dates to as soon as I know them!) and said “May the 4th be with you!” What follows is where our conversation went after that:
And that, my friends, is one of the reasons I love this girl so much. If you can’t be a geek with your friends, who can you be a geek with? By the way, I do think this “geek-stuff” is hereditary. Again, I must thank my Mother for that. Boys I’m sorry, but with 2 geeks for parents, and a Geek-Ma (as you lovingly refer to your Grandmother) I think you are doomed for geekiness as well!!
