My wife is incredibly cool. In fact, if you combine her coolness with her hotness (yes, coolness and hotness are words), it’s quite obvious I married up. Occasionally, though, her geeky side shows through.
Of course, today wasn’t one of those days.
I heard the printer on my desk hum to life. “Becca must be printing something,” I thought.
The page slowly came out, one swipe at a time. It read “One Free Month.” “Cool,” I thought.
I walked from my office into the living room. “Hey, we get a free month,” I said. “Score.”
She smiled as she took the paper from my hands.
“Woot!” I yelled.
She looked at me with that “what a geek” expression.
“You know, like the website, Woot,” I explained.
“Oh, I got it,” she said, while sounding like she really wished she didn’t.
At this point I should have taken my butt back into my office and gone back to work. But no.
“Woot means ‘wow, loot’,” I said sheepishly.
She just stares at me as I leave the room in geeky shame.
