Scott Hanselman, who has the excellent technology podcast HanselMinutes, wrote about meeting his idols, and how it sounds to an innocent bystander, in this case, his wife.
I remember having this feeling coming off TechEd awhile back, after seeing Don Box on stage (in the great immediate post-COM days). It was easy to share the excitement with those happy few, but I bet it seemed strange to my wife. I bet it still does.
And the joke at the end cracked me up. Also works for those happy(?) few.
