Long before we were married, and even before diabetes entered the picture, Trey and I were just two broke college students. For our first Valentine's Day as a couple, we ordered a pizza from our college meal plan and watched a Disney movie in his dorm. We continued that tradition yesterday by ordering a large pizza with bacon and mushroom. Our life is not so simple nowadays with both of us working engineering jobs, remodeling a house, and keeping up with 4 animals running around our house. But I still love the simple ways we say, "I love you."
Said dorm room.
We both lean towards the "geek" side of the personality spectrum, and so for Valentine's Day I'd like to dig up a poem I sent to him on Valentine's Day four years ago.
Love song for Geeks and Engineers. (Author Unknown)
I was alone and all was dark Beneath me and above My life was full of volts and amps ...But not the spark of love But now that you are here with me My heart is overjoyed You turn the square of my heart Into a sinusoid You load things from my memory Onto my system's bus My life was once assembly code Now it's C++ I love the way you solder things My circuits you can fix The voltage across your diode is much more than just point six With your amps and resistors You have built my integrator I cannot survive without you You are my function generator You have charged my life, increased my gain And made my maths discreet And now I'll end my poem here Control, Alt, and Delete.
