My wife and I watched Scorpion on the DVR tonight. “I like this show,” she told me as the credits began to roll.
“Well,” I replied, “you do have a thing for brainy nerds.”
“Are you a brainy nerd?”
“Little bit,” I said with a grin.
She headed off to the bathroom to brush her teeth. I shut down the TV and DVR and then followed along. She was still brushing her teeth when I arrived so I sidled up next to her, put my arm around her shoulders and kissed the back of her neck. As I moved to straighten up I lost my balance and stumbled back awkwardly trying to recover. The fly in my pajamas had caught on a drawer knob which is what made me lose my balance. In recovering from the fall the drawer had pulled out and was still stuck to me as I stood there. I looked at my pants pulled taught in front of me like a tent, then looked up to see her looking at them too.
I detached myself from the drawer knob and pushed it closed. “So much for the brainy nerd image” I sighed, feeling like an idiot.
She laid a hand on my cheek and said “no Honey, that is exactly the brainy nerd image.” Then she kissed me and everything was OK again.
