A few posts ago, I shared this picture my friend Katy took…
I love this picture. It’s this cool testament to the nerds/geeks we are. I look at this picture and see the hands of two people who both waited a very long time for their “happily ever after.” (And the foot of a very awesome lady 😉 ) I see these two hands that fit so perfectly together, and are prepared to hold on to each other and fight to stay together.
These hands rock.
Now, nereek (there’s got to be a better, non-made-up word out there for geeky nerds) that I am, I want to share this picture with the world. So, my bright idea was to post it on Imgur. I was thinking, “Ooooo, fellow LOTR fans can see our cool rings!”
So…I posted…and the reaction wasn’t quite what I expected. It immediately got a bunch of down votes. Not because it’s not the best quality photo. Not because The One Ring is silver and not gold. It’s because I have fat fingers.
Here’s the proof: http://imgur.com/gallery/LUtuKH6
The hilarious thing is, my fingers have been fat for as long as I can remember. They’re a part of my body. If I spent time worrying over the fact that I have fat fingers (or just am fat period), I’d never get anything done…and I’d probably be in a padded room. Yes, I have a weight problem. Yes, I have short, stubby, fat fingers. Clearly the world has not stopped spinning due to this. The fact that people’s initial reaction to my photo is “Sausages” or “Toes” or anything else is kind of baffling to me. Seriously. They’re trying to be cruel, and yet they’re not saying anything that I’ve not thought at one point or another. If you’re going to be a bully, then at least come up with something clever and unique.
