One of us...

I was just dropping a book off at Cleetus's place, A Deepness in the Sky. I mentioned to him that the author was a CS professor: "One of us!"

From the other room we hear the future Mrs. Cleetus say, "I'm not one of you, am I?" Lucky for her (and him), I don't think that she is.

P.S. I don't mean to imply that the future Mrs. Cleetus has no identity of her own, I just don't have an anonymity-preserving nickname for her.

P.P.S. A Deepness in the Sky is one of the best books I've ever read. I would recommend it to anyone.
