Some days, you just get by.
Tired Fearful Small and crawly
on no sleep (troubles, troubles) and a too-early dentist appointment made in good faith a year ago kept in resignation and out of more fear (bad gums, the family curse).
And then after a day of throwing down too many cups of caffeine (all flavors)
and an afternoon of pushing through too many scary jobs,
tired and fearful, small and crawly
you straggle home exhausted from An Event (really, it was lovely, we were just fagged out and not in a gay way)
and The BF gives you a tutorial in alpha channels and makes all the bad things disappear.
This is why I love being a nerd
This is why I love being in love with one.
