The “Nerd Scale” revisited

Forget about Biltema…we ended up at Toys “R” Us on Sunday morning (courtesy of Dr. Darling‘s Dad’s car) and came home with not one, but TWO more kites. We bought a smaller stunt kite (which we named Discovery II) and a small parafoil because it was 50% off.

Worse yet, we’ve been out flying them EVERY DAY since. Could we be any more geeky? Dr. Darling is a scientist, so at least she has an excuse. I just seem to be getting nerdier by the day for no reason. Surely it’s her influence, right?

 Today was especially nice, because after a long and chaotic first day back at work, she picked me up at the train station (I LOVE car-sitting for her Dad) and we drove directly to Riborsborg, do not pass go, do not collect $200, and flew the kites for about an hour. The sky and the sea were bright blue and the wind was perfect. It was such a great way to unwind from the workday…I don’t care how nerdy it sounds!

 

Feed my ego!
