The Colonel purchased a new shaver, but that is not the point.

One morning, the blond looked into the bathroom to find him staring intently at its carrying case.

The Colonel replied, "I'm married to a nerd."

"Osmosis," She replied.

Incidentally, she was correct.

We never confuse our science fiction universes. It would be like confusing jupiter with a banana. Outrageous.

The Blonde
PS-I never considered myself a nerd until the Colonel insisted on purchasing a blue tooth for me. I now live in Nerdville. Population: Me. And all the other nerds.
