There are occasional moments in a relationship when even the truest love is tested. The envelope stretched. Limits pushed. Patience worn.
When one of the participants in a couple is a geek, this happens more often than anyone would care to admit.
Take, for example, how geeked out I was over the news that a dozen 7-Eleven franchises across the nation and in Canada would be making a temporary transformation to Kwik-E-Marts in honor of the film version of The Simpsons coming out later this month. Granted the nearest one is in the South Side of Chicago (near Shelbyville, HA!), and I'm not too thrilled at making the trip in to the city to see it, I am still geeked over the fact that all 7-Elevens will trade in some of their standard products for Simpsons-themed variations.
Katie could've just rolled her eyes and chalked up yet another one to my inner nerd. She could've ignored me entirely. She could have shouted "ear muffs" and run around with her hands cupped over her ears until I finally shut up.
But what did she do instead?
She made a trip to the 7-Eleven near her work and picked up some of the goodies!
D'oh! Now that's love!
