Do you take this word nerd . . .?

MRP can’t believe I forgot to mention this little tidbit that happened last week: a word nerd named Aric Egmont proposed to his girlfriend Jennie Bass with a little help from the Boston Globe crossword puzzle. It’s obviously a match made in word nerd heaven, as he said:

“On our fourth date, I knew I had found the kind of dork I could love,” Egmont wrote in a note to the magazine. “We had already had some more adventurous outings. But on our fourth date we just went to the local coffee shop and did the crossword.”

Sounds like true love to MRP, but far be it from me to throw stones, considering that my third date with Mister MRP was to a poetry reading by Louise Glück. Read the whole story and see the crossword puzzle that brought them together ’til death do they part. And congrats to the crazy kids.

  1. How big of a word nerd can he be if he can’t even spell Eric right? Geez.
