Last night, I met a friend for drinks and dinner after work. Imagine, if you will, a very hip drinking establishment, right smack dab in the middle of the Arena district of Columbus. (You actually look out on the front entrance to Nationwide Arena from this place.) A bunch of young, single people hanging out doing their young, single people things, waitresses in tight black outfits, TV’s showing ESPN, music playing over top of any TV sound, etc. Over in the corner, there’s two somewhat older, married guys, huddled behind a laptop, looking at a Powerpoint presentation that my friend put together of his pics from a family trip to Indonesia this summer. Yeah I’m very hip and trendy aren’t I? 🙂
Although, I have to admit the pictures were very cool. Very different from anything you would see around here, that’s for sure. On the other hand, I could do without the gaunlet of monkeys that they had to walk past to get to the Hindu shrine. Those guys looked scary.
Then, upon my return home, I found my wife’s day had not gotten better for her, as our internet connection was not working. It turned out to simply be a matter of resetting the router, so I got to be her hero for the evening. You see, there are times when being a geek is a very good thing!
