I have a small USB charging cable. Measures about two inches long. Lightning connector, Apple dock connector, mini USB, micro USB, USB-C.
I call it my “precious.”
“Why do you call it your precious?” asked the coffee shop acquaintance at the conference I am attending.
“Because it is such a small thing. And with it, the wielder can convey great power.” I said in my best Sean Bean accent.
“Ohmigod, you are *SUCH* a dork. You’re probably still single.” she responded.
A few hours later she walked up to where I was perched on a railing and chatting with another conference attendee, without formal introduction or pause she interjects “I need that charging cable for my iPhone.”
I turned slowly. “Sorry, I’m a dork. Remember?”
I am just so edgy some days.
The response, to maintain the professionalism of this website, is unprintable.
On another note, what kind of young lady goes out of her way to refer to a professionally attired businessman at a technology conference as a “dork?”
