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.

sounds like our life, but Ben's an electrical engineer, so all his comments are related to anything electronic. We have 6 computers in our house. Yes, 6.... for 2 of us...
