Big Bang Theory... I am not a "Penny!"

Posted by on Feb. 21, 2013 at 2:05 AM

Since the Sitcom, Big Bang Theory, gained popularity.  The shear mention that my husband is a scientist typically leads to the "Penny" comparison.  Seriously, just because my husband is a physicist doesn't mean I am his proverbial "Penny."  

The comparison is quite annoying and kinda insulting.

Any other scientist's wives out there experience "Penny" moments?

Are you a "Amy Farrah Fowler"? Or a "Bernadette"? Or Raj's sister?


Did you know the person that plays AFF is an actual neurobiologist in real life?

Nope can't say I've ever had that happen, but DH is a chemist not a physicist like the guy on the show.

Not a scientist's wife, but a scientist's daughter. I am from Los Alamos, NM...the only reason for the town is the Los Alamos National Lab (first atomic bomb). So lots of Amy Farrah Fowler's, not many Pennys.

What kind of a scientist is your husband?

I am still laughing at this reply.

Nice, my husband has worked there... He is a nuclear physicist or solid state matter.  However, you prefer...
