My husband has always found me to be a nerd, dork and a geek. Does it bother me? No. That is what I am so no point in getting hurt when I know that’s what I am.
He doesn’t get why or how I can get lost in a book for hours or days where the only thing I do is feed the kids.
He doesn’t understand why I give up a Saturday to go to a book fair. That’s just not his idea of fun.
He asks sometimes how my book is.
He certainly doesn’t understand how I could sleep on the streets of Los Angeles waiting for a movie that was based on a book. He even asked me when he picked me up from the airport, “Did you get this out of your system?” My response was, “No.”
In January I posted on my personal Facebook the link to an authors interview I did with them. About an hour later I got a text from my husband…
Husband: Did you interview an author?
Husband: Did you call them or was it done through email?
Husband: Why didn’t you tell me you did this kind of thing?
Me: You don’t listen when I talk books with you.
When he got home that night we talked about it again. He was kind of upset that I thought he didn’t care what I did. He told me he can’t keep up with what book I’m on so he doesn’t normally ask. Then he said, “I actually find it pretty neat what you’re doing.” I then gave him a look. He said, “Sarah I think you’re pretty cool, okay?!”
It’s taken 10 years of marriage to get those words out him. But I think he looks at my nerdiness a little different now and has come to realize my book nerd status is here to stay.
Oh dear god, it must be getting close to that time of the month for me because I seriously got a little tear in my eye.LOL I'm glad he was proud of you!
Oh what would we do without the men in our lives?! LOL
This was fun to read Sarah. 🙂
That's so awesome! I love this post!!
Awe…this brought tears to my eyes. So sweet that he gets you and he also sounded "proud" of you. 🙂
Awww!This has gotta be the sweetest thing I've read this week! 😀
