Looking through my mom's desk for a pair of scissors, I found her gigantic slide rule from college, in a nice leather case. Never know when you might need that again, I guess.

There is a story suggested by this slide rule case.

The underside of the top flap of the case has my dad's name written on it, but it's crossed out, and my mom's name WITH HER FIRST MARRIED NAME is written underneath it, meaning that while my mom was still married to her first husband, my dad gave her his slide rule.

Could this be how things started with them, and could there possibly be a geekier way for things to start between two people than the gift of a slide rule? :ms_thinking:
