Did this really happen?

While I was waiting for my drink at the airport Starbucks, she noticed my t-shirt and said to me indignantly "Nerd is a much better label than geek, even if you are using an html tag."

Perhaps this was a missed opportunity, but I was rather dizzy at the time and I wasn't in the mood for a conversation that started out with indignation.

As I'm sure you've guessed, "she" = a young lady, but it sounds much better with the pronoun because then it's easier to imagine it as a sentence in a novel.

(The quote is approximate, by the way.)
