SWMBO and The Geek

This is the REAL picture of The Geek, which (if only to make it more palatable) includes SHE - Who Must Be Obeyed

Jerry The Geek and SWMBO

I've had some folks ask me what SWMBO stands for.

It's a long story, and I won't bother you with the geek-length version.

SWMBO stands for "SHE - Who Must Be Obeyed"

This was the title of the high-priestess in H. Ryder Haggard's novel "SHE". You may know the author from his more popular Allan Quartermain books. In fact, "SHE" has even been made into a movie, starring Ursala Andress, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Well, it isn't a very GOOD movie, but it does feature the incredible Andress as Ayesha, and that's worth the effort to look it up.

Later .... much later ... it was the apopellationj by which John Mortimer's Horace Rumple ("Rumpole of the Bailey", played by Leo McKern, that admirable Cardinal, Bishop, Monk, Monsignor, Moriarity and British Barrister) referred to his wife, Hilda.

But I never intended to compare My Sweetheart (long may she remain incognito) and Hilda.
More like Ayesha.

SWMBO is a charmer. I would never compare her to a harridan ... no matter how well-intentioned .. like Hilda
