You stop listening halfway through many brewery tours and just read signs, record boards, and box labels.
Or you are muttering to yourself every time something is wrong and your wife gives you the "don't be that guy nudge".

Actually, I'm usually giving her that nudge. I'm pretty laissez faire and she is not.

My better half rolls her eyes and squeezes my arm every time she sees me starting to twitch on tours...

You read through ALL 2 pages of the "Anybody try kombucha" thread and think about it trying it even though you have NO CLUE what a "SCOBY" is.

That's what got me started on it. Of course, this comes from the guy who fermented Tang https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=18990.msg241983

That also reminds me that I need to wake my SCOBY back up and get another batch of Kombucha going

You "tuck in" and say "goodnight" to all of your fermenters that are quietly chugging away before going to bed...
