I Have a Pair of 3D Glasses…for Emergencies
First of all, I must apologise for being slightly absent from the blogosphere lately. Sorry, guys…I’ll post something good this week.
In the meantime, I feel like I need to share this true story with you. If you’ve been following my blog for some time now (thank you, by the way!), then you know that I consider myself to be a nerd and with good reason. But you need to know that there was something that happened this past weekend that just reiterated that fact and I feel I must share with you.
On Sunday night, I went to bed rather early (around 10:30pm) so that I could rest up for the start of a new week. Spring is usually a pretty busy time of year at our college, so I wanted to make sure that I would have a good start on the week. Well, once I was in bed, I flipped on my TV and started watching Futurama. I then noticed that, for some reason, it appeared to be filmed in 3D. “Shoot!”, I thought to myself, “if only I had 3D glasses, this would be SO cool to watch!”
I then remembered that I do, indeed, have 3D glasses. In my purse. In case of emergencies.
I then jumped out of bed and ran downstairs to get them. In the process, I hit my hip on my dresser, stubbed my toe on my door frame, and stumbled down the stairs, my body unable to keep up with the speed that I demanded of it. I raced over to my purse, rummaging through every inch of it until I found them. “Aha!”, I said aloud, and raised the glasses up in the air, triumphantly. “Got ‘em!”
I proceeded to watch the rest of the episode. By myself. In my bed. Wearing my emergency 3D glasses.
I’m not sure what’s sadder…the fact that I had 3D glasses for just such an occasion, or the fact that I almost killed myself running down the stairs to get them.
Do you own a pair of emergency 3D glasses?
Do you think that risking your life to retrieve them is worth the effort?
Can you please tell me your own nerd-story and make it worse than mine so I don’t feel so badly?
