The Unsung Heroes of Geeks

An article posted over at reminded me how lucky I am to be married to my wife.  The common misconception is that you need to find someone that shares your interests.  In reality, comment interests are good, but all you need to do is find someone that is willing to put up with your geekiness.  If you get lucky, you interests may rub off on each other and you can both enjoy new things.  No, I am not quite ready to pickup a crochet hook, but my wife now enjoys playing video games with me and will try eating just about anything at least once. She trusts me to take things apart around the house and even when she has no clue what I am doing, she asks questions to learn and is supportive.  Check out the original article here.  If you can relate to the feeling that the commenter had in the article, you too just might be a Geek.
