Revenge of the Nerds

John and I are nerds. This is no secret. We like sci-fi shows and movies. We read fantasy books. We play a lot of board and card games. (Some of our favorites: Settlers of Catan, Cards Against Humanity, Kingsburg, Dixit.) We geek out and get excited over nerdy things like Harry Potter (me) or new video games (John). 

We've embraced our nerdness. John'll buy t-shirts with nerdy jokes on them like one that says "Revenge" with a dinosaur hurtling towards a meteor. (Or is it asteroid? I can never keep those straight.) I'll spontaneously start singing The Mysterious Ticking Noise from Potter Puppet Pals.

John was a theater geek in high school. I read Shakespeare ahead of the class so I could understand it better.

I could go on, but you get the idea. We're nerds.

A roommate of mine once said, "Nerds must date other nerds so they can get married and make more nerds."

So basically, Nugget has no choice... with us as parents, she likely won't be sitting at the cool kid table. I hope she's okay with that.

Which clearly means she'll have way more character and smarts than the average nugget :)
