Imagine my surprise when he wanted to see Island of Lemurs, suggesting it with so much out-of-character enthusiasm that I at first thought he was being a sarcastic punk. We received our tickets, picked our seats, and waited for the movie to begin.
"You're not just watching this because you know I'll like it, are you?" I asked.
"No," Sexy Nerd assured me, smiling. "I love lemurs! Who doesn't love lemurs?"
The lights dimmed and the documentary began, with Morgan Freeman taking us back to the time when lemurs ruled the island of Madagascar, thriving in an all-lemur paradise. I glanced at Sexy Nerd, who was still smiling. Suddenly, he frowned. He leaned over to me and whispered...
"I thought lemurs were meerkats."
