How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 120 (or The “Monk” of Kings)

You have a dream in which you accompany the characters from the USA Network detective series Monk on case involving a society of people living according to the social customs depicted in the Brandon Sanderson fantasy novel, The Way of Kings.

In the dream, Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is caught reading the lettering on a piece of evidence and is accused of being less than masculine, because reading anything other than glyph pairs is considered a feminine pursuit in that societal structure.  At some point, he insists on wiping someone’s shardplate armor with a moist towelette, because he sees a speck of mud.

Later, Monk and Capt. Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) chase a suspect through a muddy field during a “highstorm,” causing Monk to freak out and proclaim that his shoes are ruined.
