comment Is there a shorter alternative for “Enjoy your meal”?
In Spanish, they say provecho. When I lived in Argentina, many people asked me for the English equivalent. Not able to think of one, I taught them to say, "choke and die," when someone began their meal.

comment Will some parents be offended when being asked, “Is it male or female?”
Excellent question. For fear of offending, I often wait to hear whether the person in question is referred to as "he/him/his" or "she/her". But if I really needed to ask, I would probably say something like, "I apologize, I'm unfamiliar with that name. Is XXXXX a man or a woman?"

@Ben Voigt A true nerd never thinks he overstates his ability.

You seem to have perfectly described what I would consider the stereotypical nerd. We nerds all have to admit that, deep down, we are like this. The nerd in any given situation who does this best is termed the alpha nerd or silver specs.
