Dating Nerds

Revenge of the Nerds
Do you remember the poster, are you a nerd? Arrows pointed to different spots of the nerd photograph making sure to point out the pocket protector, tape on glasses, high-water pants, etc., etc. Way back when, I went out with this guy. It was a blind date, but unfortunately I wasn't blind. The nerd kept trying to put his awkward little arm around my shoulders and a car load of "cool" guys even drove by pointing and laughing.

The clincher at the end of the evening was the dead fly in his ear. No, I didn't make this up. After we got our food (he ordered peaches and cottage cheese), I noticed the little insect that lay on its wings with bent legs folded up into his greasy ear canal. I lost my appetite. 

Who knows? He may be the CEO of some multi-million dollar corporation right now, but it's not worth it. Gross! Here's a link to one of my favorite nerd videos staring Dimitri Martin. It's great so check it out!

Maybe it was his pet fly and it just died in there and he thought it was just sleeping.

I'm nerdy, but not that nerdy!

That is so funny; makes you wonder how he got to the top with that level of dis-appeal:)

Thanks for the comments. I have no idea if this nerd made it to the top. I said, "Good bye," and never looked back. Nor did I accept anymore blind dates from my brother!

Goodness, that's something. Poor guy. :)

I can attest to this story being true, as Joyce told it to me years ago then I will admit, and the story hasn't changed a bit. As soon as I saw your title I thought of the guy with the dead fly. It is just one of those stories you never forget.
