I'm not offended... you actually brought up a good point based on mis-read there. Things outside of programming are helpful too. After all, someone who spends 24 x 7 buried in a compiler probably will not be very useful when I need to put them on the phone with a customer. Plenty of non-technical hobbies also develop relevant work skills. And of course, anyone who can raise kids and do a good job of it probably knows how to handle frustration well, always a good thing in the shop!
