If your boyfriend decides to learn scripting,
and you begin to worry that he might be spending more time with his computer
than with you...
and that maybe he might even like his computer more than you...
and since he feels that way maybe he should just go marry it...
Perhaps a nice alternative would be to instead
have him incorporate you into the variables of his scripts.
That way all the time he spends on that machine
actually becomes a geometric homage to you!
Kind of the pinnacle of geeky romance, no?
