Magical Moment 445, "Nerds of a Feather"

Takes one to know one...

Birds of a feather flock together....

In a random discussion about movies with a friend of mine, I casually mentioned the apparently appalling fact that I've never seen "Lord of the Rings."

His response was a gaping gasp and a mortified stare, as if I had two heads growing off my neck. 
"How can that be?!" he asked, stunned.

I wondered what the big deal was and just explained that I don't watch a lot of sci-fi. His next response had me laughing for minutes. It was as if he was just double checking known fact, like, "You're married, right? You live in Jersey, right?" Because apparently, I have this ora about me. And  I wear the title proudly. Maybe not always in the past, but I know myself well enough to know the answer was "yes" when he asked, 

"But Elizabeth...aren't you a nerd?????!!!"
