Packington's Pound

Me:  That's Packington's Pound. I could play that on the lute when I practiced. I haven't practiced in months.

E: The operative word there is 'lute'. It makes you a nerd.

Me: [open-mouthed pause.]
I can quote Star Trek.
I go to science fiction conventions.
I'm a computer programmer,
but playing the lute makes me a nerd?

E: [serene nod.] That's the gold standard for nerds.

Me: Well. At least it's a gold standard.
