Well, my first thought was to do a supernatural creature that swarms. But I figured I’d rather spend time talking about my favorite person. Now I’m sure most of you are going how does this have anything to do with me – it doesn’t actually! Hard to believe I can think of someone other than myself these days, but honestly, I think of nothing more than Sage so often now.
How does this pertain to Sage? His love of super heroes. I get lost when he goes off on movies and comic books, but I do listen and I remembered there was a super villain whose name is Swarm as in like a swarm of bees covering his skeleton.
I don’t even want to go there in terms of concept but hey whatever, it made me think of my love and his love of geek. Yes, he’s the nerd too, but he is ever such the geek. Now those of you who know AJ know what I mean by nerd and geek. Sage has educated me on this as well.
A nerd is book smart. The stereotypical acne ridden kid wearing glasses, a pocket protector etc. This is a nerd.
And for those of you who think a nerd and a geek are the same thing, you are so very wrong. A geek is someone who is enthusiastic about a given subject. You can geek out over math or geek out of football, or geek out over yoga. All it truly means is that you are passionate about a topic and aren’t afraid to show it and you don’t care if anyone likes it other than you.
This comic sums up the whole nomenclature perfectly!
Zachary Levi said pretty much the same thing, except he used the term nerdy. But I have to clarify it’s geeky, not nerdy because points up
Being nerdy just means being passionate about something, including everyone – the coolest people on Earth are passionate and therefore nerdy about something whatever it is, whether it’s sports, or gaming, or technology, or fashion, or beauty, or food, or whatever. ~Zachary Levi
So back on topic, Sage loves superheroes. His entire wardrobe of normal everyday wear consists of superhereo t-shirts. My favorite to date has to be his Iron Man t-shirt – the one with the fake light behind it like Tony Stark wears. Though I do love his Captain America shield one too.
I’m sure I will be dragged to every new Marvel movie out there. And I’m sure I’ll enjoy them – who can’t resist hot guys in revealing clothes? And there is the action and thrill of the chase. But the biggest draw for me is spending those two to three hours completely and totally alone with my love.
