Geek Conversations

Co-worker: I’ve always wondered why Rogue doesn’t fly in the X-Men movies?
Me: Do you want to know?
Co-worker: Yes.
Me: Are you SURE you really want to know?
Co-worker: Tell me.

Twenty minutes later after covering both the history of Rogue in the X-Men and a smidge of the alternate universe the Age of Apocalypse, it turns out he really didn’t want to know.

Y’know, you try to warn people you’re a geek, but they never fully understand until you’re midway through your highly animated and extremely insightful lecture on one of Marvel’s most powerful mutants.

    Dude, while I’m sure it was an honor just to be nominated for geekiest, I am totally giving you the Academy Award for funniest. You hurt me. Where were you when I needed an interpreter during the Ray Carter days?

    Lynn – I was hoping you’d put the quote in from the artist. 😀Lori – All you had to do was ask Ray to get Rocco to get me and I would have been there with my Universal Geek Translator. One day, you’ll have to tell the story about the “big gift” from Ray. It’s still one of my favorites.
