Face it, you hit the jackpot!He's totally right. But don't worry. On the nerd hierarchy, I think I rate above the "dress up like an anime character" nerd, and I would never encourage or even tolerate Amy lowering herself to that level. Funny nerd t-shirts are acceptable, though. Josh, your wife wearing the knit Leia hat is totally cool because it was funny.
But on the other hand it sounds like your marriage is completely malfunctioning because it was supposed to make you less like a single comic book nerd, not more like one!
Just don't ask her to dress up for conventions.
I'm not helping myself, though: I recently acquired a set of samurai swords. That is another step down the ladder (even if they were a gift).
Someone should write up a nerd hierarchy. I'll bet someone already has.
Brendoman has come through by finding exactly such a hierarchy!
