So…

Yesterday, I spent about half an hour trying to explain to my boyfriend iambic pentameter and Shakespeare’s influence on the English language.

Ironically, this came up as a topic of conversation because I was telling him that I sealed my fate as the class nerd when I knew all about iambic pentameter in 9th grade English while we were reading The Tragedy of Julius Caesar.

… sigh.

Describe the natural flow of human speech, I said, and then pointed out how that sentence itself was in iambic pentameter.

This is my life.
