Sleepless In Geekdom

Early in our marriage, my husband Mark worked as a computer programmer and was on over-night call:

Sleepless In Geekdom
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My husband’s a super-smart geek
Who’s on overnight call once a week.
And those questions they pose
After wrecking our doze
Sound, to me, much like Latin or Greek.

UPDATE: Happy International Programmers’ Day, January 7th!

And happy Geek Pride Day, May 25th!

    I will memorize this and recite it to myself when MY geek is on call. Those are the nights when I awake to find him sitting at the computer with our phone to one ear and his cell phone to the other, trying to fix a problem that happened miles away. You write great limericks.

    I found this through the Carnival of Family Life #51.
