I have mentioned before, my hubby is a geek. He’s a network guy…has been for a long time. He’s the reason I can even write an e-mail, or create a website. He adores technology. When he was in law school…and studying for the Bar Exam…I would find him blowing off “studying” by playing on the computer. When I say “playing”, I don’t mean he was on Facebook, or surfing porn. Not even playing solitaire. He would be writing code for a new program…or learning a new formatting language…or researching new technology. I finally said, “Hey. You will hate being a lawyer. You love technology. You should probably stay in this field.” So far, he has.
Recently I have come to terms with the idea that I am done with nursing. For real. I had to leave to take care of my MIL, and I guess I didn’t realize how quickly I would become “fusty“.
We’ve been discussing what I should do now. I still have my online retail stores. But toying with the idea of furthering my technology training. I really should never have left my job at EDS. I adored it. Oh, well.
So. I am going through some materials on the CCNA [Cisco Certified Network Associate] training. Watching videos for now. I have been exposed to this stuff for years [hubby is at the CCIE...E for expert...level] so I know most of the terms, but this lays all of it out in an A to Z, start to finish, definition type of way. Very nice. However…
My husband works from home, as do I. I work in a different room and he comes to visit when he’s on break. When I have the headset on, absorbing tech-speak, and he comes into the room, I try to wait until I am at a reasonable jumping off point to stop the recording. While I do that? He sits and stares at me. More like…gazes at me. With lust.
Today, I said, “What?”
He said, “What ‘what’?”
“You are staring at me.”
“At you. You learning stuff.”
“Me. Learning geek stuff.”
“Yeaaaah.” *very big grin*
“This turns you on, huh?”
Yeah, so. Men…geeks in particular…pretty funny. And easy. Did I mention that? Heh.
