Beauty & The Geek


Hubby spent so much time scouring his favorite electronics haven for his new gadget, that we almost missed the UPS guy when we got home. I signed for the package, and for a brief moment, our flat was silent save for the ripping sound of boxes being opened.

We cried out in unison as the contents of our respective packages were revealed - tan wingtip shoes and an Android phone for the beauty and the geek. He turned to me and rattled off the specs of his new toy, as I raved about the detailed craftsmanship of my oxfords.

I couldn't understand his questions on battery life and firmware versions, and he dismissed mine on matching belts, socks, and trousers. We spent the rest of the afternoon in separate corners, busy with our new objects of affection, remembering the other only when the pangs of hunger came.

As we walked side by side to a nearby eatery, hubby's phone rang loudly.

"I like your ringtone," I complimented over the phone. "And reception's still clear in this usual dead spot."

"Shoes are nice. You look great," he replied, his face lighting up. As did mine.
