I was asked the other day what it meant to be a “geek”. This fellow co-worker of mine began to answer her own question by asking other questions which were, “do you wear silly shirts, awkward around the opposite sex, or just kind of odd?”
I waited until she was done and then told her no. What she was thinking of were clowns.
I don’t know about you, but when I say I am a “geek”, I mean I am very passionate about something. Using this definition, I am a geek for games, for movies, for music, for good food, and most importantly, my family.
So, if you are a geek, pat yourself on the back repeatedly until you are out of breath. You are one of the lucky ones. You have passion.
