Am i the only one that finds it funny to hide a fake grenade in the bouquet that the bride tosses to the hoard of women, and then shout ‘FIRE IN THE HOLE!”?
Geeky Bride Guide 101:
Rule # 1- Picking a geeky groom.
I say pick loosely. My fiance Nick and I have known each other since 2001. I was a sophomore in high school, Nick was a junior. I barely knew him, and only by face as his brother was in my small group of friends. Years past. He graduated in 2003, and I graduated in 2004. He was engaged twice before he and I were together. I remained single with occasional dates here and there but nothing notable.
Then, that little thing called the internet came in handy. He had seperated from his fiance months prior to approaching me via aim chat. We talked, we shared, we got to know one another on a deeper level. FOr three years we did this digital dance. He asked me out many times, and I politely declined for no other reason than unmanageable anxiety.
This geeky chick had issues. My existing issues with anxiety manifested into physical stress, and I began to lose my hair. Unwilling to deal with watching myself slowly go bald, I shaved my head and resigned myself to living alone for the rest of my life.
Nicholas wasn’t having that. Who knows what cosmic force put the idea in my head to stop being such an anxious geek and allow myself to be around this boy who for some insane reason wanted to be around me. He and I stood in the same room on February 14, click, and haven’t stopped since. We’ve been together now for 16 months, are happily engaged and have one child: A small orange fur ball named Conan, who is quickly on his way to becoming a hellaciously big bad hellfire cat. We’re now one big happy crazy geeky oddball family.
