Those of you who have been reading this blog for some time would be shocked, I’m sure, to learn that I’m a nerd. It’s true.
Well, maybe you are not shocked at all. To that I stick my tongue out at you. No I don’t, because that would be mean and my Mom told me to never stick my tongue out at anybody. Still, I thought you were my friends. *sniff*
Well, I’ve always known I was a nerd, from my love of comic books, and Star Wars (before it was cool again), and science fiction, and learning, and even my *ahem* stink in the band. Anyhow, going through one of my old sketch books a few months ago reinforced just how much of a nerd I’ve always been (don’t let my sporty side fool you).
My notebook was filled with some geeky things, such as sketches of Batman and Robin, Spawn, and Snoopy. Going through that notebook also jogged a memory of a game I used to play with myself.
First of all, let me remind you these were the days before the Internet. We didn’t have entertainment at our fingertips. Got it? Good.
Anyhow, I used to play this game where I would take a die (6-sided, not the 12-sided nerdy kind) and roll it. On a piece of paper I had a column for each number, one through six, and I would keep a tally of each time the number was rolled. I would actually cheer for certain numbers to win. I guess 3 was my favorite number back then because I definitely wanted it to win. I even remember cooking the books in 3’s favor.
Pretty bad, huh? Anybody else want to share any geeky stories about themselves? I bet you can’t beat mine. 🙂
