You Know You're Married to an Engineer When . . .

You're sitting at home on a Friday evening. Watching a little TV together. Flipping through the channels, you happen to land on This Old House. Your husband glances at the screen and exclaims:

"Oooooooo. Yeah! Valves! Ooooo a needlevalve!"

And the excitement in his voice rivals that of a kid that just got a puppy for Christmas.

You stare at your husband, blank faced for a moment. Saying nothing.

"What? Valves are awesome!" he defends.

Then you can only smile because you knew what you were marrying.

An engineer.
