Nerd legacy


Well, geekiness is hereditary and here's the proof:

When Danny was a young fellow, he spent weeks constructing an authentic suit of chain mail from spools of steel wire. And yesterday I came home to see the kids gleefully trying on their nerdly inheritance. The kids love it, although they can barely stand up wearing 30 lbs of metal.

but wait, the adorable photo of you two when you were twelve is titled "danny's graduation". Is he an official knight or did he wear that to graduation from high school?

No, it was college. I was an official nerd, if that counts.
