You knew it was coming...

In the game that I used to work on that most of the other people in my studio still work on, the player can buy clothes for their character to wear and furniture to decorate their apartment with. When the game first came out, they were sold in separate stores that had different interfaces, and so the stores had different code running them. But that was nearly three years ago and things have changed a lot since then.

So a couple of days ago, I walk into the break room where my husband (the QA manager) and one of the devs are talking about a problem with one of the stores, and, since I was curious, I asked them what the problem was.

Husband: It's a problem with one of the stores.
Me: Which one?
Husband: Well, you know that we have furniture stores and clothing stores, right?
Me: Yeah.
Husband: Remember you had us create a store that could sell both?
Me: Yeah.
Husband: So, you could say that that store is...
Dev: ...a hybrid.
Me: I hate you both.

I have very deliberately and consciously immersed my life in nerd. I wouldn't have it any other way.

On Graham Norton, Michael Fassbender mentioned "Hybrid". Then I saw that word when I was looking up google street maps. I think I'm experiencing what is called Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon.

Oh absolutely! Everything now seems to be a hybrid. It's gotten to the point where, when we see something that might be even slightly considered a hybrid, my husband and I just glare at each other, daring the other person to make the joke.

I have one joke, but I won't say it because I know the feeling of being caught off guard by one.:)
