I get to work with some very cool people. But we, once in awhile, try to out-geek each other. And today was one of those days.
Now, before we go on, we need to go back. To the Spider-Man Clone Saga.
My wife, Leslie, was a HUGE fan of Ben Reilly, The Scarlet Spider. And she was disappointed that Marvel did not put a Scarlet Spider t-shirt up for sale. For those of you who don’t know what that would look like, it would be a light blue color with a large black spider symbol on the front.
Let’s move up to Christmas 2013.
I had already decided to get Leslie a nice chunk of gift cards to her favorite things: Barnes&Noble; Panera Bread; and iTunes. But I felt like it wasn’t enough and decided to do a little searching. And this is what I came up with:
I put the cards in with the hoodie and, when she opened the box, the cards went flying as she yanked the hoodie out. Her family was a little shocked because they had never seen her act like this for a gift. But I’ve been at her side for almost 20 years and I know things about her that they don’t. Obviously.
She has been wearing that hoodie around the house on almost a daily basis.
So I figured that I would go back to the site where I found the hoodie to see if there was anything that I would be interested in.
A S.H.I.E.L.D. sweater and hoodie!!! In my size!!!
My Must-Have warning system went all 3-alarm on me and I ordered them.
And today they arrived.
You probably think that all I will have to do is wear just one of these to work tomorrow and I will be Geek Numero Uno. However, the nice people who I ordered these from just happened to throw in two unexpected presents:
A S.H.I.E.L.D. button:
And a Stark Industries Keychain:
So..tomorrow…I will not only be Top Geek…I will flash these two items and destroy all competition. FOREVER!!!
