“Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Yo, Yo…”

No title….just thinking….

One day I will write my autobiography and I will call it “The Good Nerd.”

…because… you know… there are good nerds and there are bad nerds.

I fall under the former.  Why?  Because only a nerd enjoys to distinguish between “former” and “latter” and feels special while doing so. However a bad nerd would stroke her own ego for doing it and then make sure you, the audience, understood the distinction. I’m not stroking my own ego. I’m simply pointing out that I enjoy the difference between “former” and “latter” —

— kind of like how I used to enjoy Grover’s illustration of “near” (neeeeeaaaaaaar) and “far” (faaaaaaaaaaar) on Sesame Street.

Don’t steal that book title.  It’s mine I tell ‘ya.  MINE.

***Speaking of taking stuff — I don’t know who to give credit to for the above image (bad! bad nerd!).

  2. “The Good Nerd” has echoes of “The Good Earth” (Pearl S. Buck). Love it!!!
