On Marriage, Insanity and Geeky Collectibles

My missus can be really, really weird…and this is coming from a 26 year old guy who just spent 15 bucks on a replica ‘Sonic Screwdriver’.

Tomorrow morning, Sunny is going straight from work to a ‘sleep study’. Basically, she’s gonna get off work at 5.45 as usual, then go to the doctor’s office and sleep there until about 4 O’Clock in the afternoon.

Guess what? She’s kinda freaked out that this is the first night (well, night for us) that we’ve spent apart since we got married. She spent about half an hour before leaving for work telling me that she’s going to miss me…while getting more and more annoyed that I didn’t seem to think this was such a momentous occasion.

Well, here’s the thing. I’ve been in bed when Sunny’s got in from work and slept until 4am before, or Sunny has come in from work, got changed and headed straight back out for most of the day.

In other words, this is no where near the longest we’ve ever been apart. The only difference is, this time, she’ll be sleeping while she’s away from home.

So what’s the deal? Is Sunny a crackpot, or am I just an evil, non-sentimental male?

The answer, of course, is both.

PS. I managed to rationalize the purchase of a sonic screwdriver because it’s basically a pen, and has a nib that writes in UV ink. I’ve since used it to invisibly mark a lot of our more valuable possessions in case they ever get stolen.

Basically, guys, if you feel like owning some replica Time Lord technology, just tell your missus it’s actually a safety device that will help with the recovery of stolen possessions

PPS, It’s a really bad idea to point it at your wife when she’s talking, press the button and say “Damn! You can still talk…stupid thing doesn’t work.”

I'm sorry to say that you're an evil, non-sentimental male.

I'm also sorry to say that I've been hopelessly brainwashed by my wife. Don't trust my judgement.

Evil and non-sentimental are synonymous with
