Earlier this week, my wife came to visit me at my workplace. Since the last time she was in my office several months ago, I’ve upgraded to a sweet dual 19″ monitor setup.The following conversation ensued:

Her: Whoah!

Me: “What?”

Her: “Are they both yours?”

Me: (Getting excited now): “Absolutely! With the increased desktop space I’ve really amped up my productivity!”

Then I saw the look on her face I’ve seen countless times in the five years since we’ve been married. It’s the look of someone who has once again had a cold reality smack her square in the face.

It’s the stark realization that no matter how normal your husband may appear outwardly… you must face the fact that you married a huge, huge nerd.
