What I Hear When My Boyfriend Speaks Tech

Cloud computing. Right?

I recently told my neighbor my boyfriend works in Cyber Security. He does not.

I wasn’t lying — this is, unfortunately, how I operate: I hear a tech phrase, roll it around in my mind while wondering what it entails, then conflate it with every other tech term I’ve heard. It’s kind of like how I assume that anything within the umbrella of science entails pipetting liquids from one container to another in a basement.

Sharing a 1-bedroom apartment which is also an office with my tech industry boyfriend means I overhear a lot of terms I don’t normally use. So I started drawing my interpretations.
