Self: Will you stop?
My: I'm just trying to convey...
Self: I know she told you guys she is a lesbian.
My: Yeah, I don't know what that's all...
Self: Stop. We said we were going to be positive.
My: No, you said we were going to be positive. I'm skeptical.
My: Just yesterday she was hit on by a guy.
Self: She was not. What guy?
My: That guy who wanted to suck her toes.
Self: He wasn't hitting on her, he was just a weirdo, trying to hustle some change.
My: She said he was good looking.
Self: She did not.
My: Yes she did, she said he was dapper.
Self: That just means his clothes were wrinkled, probably.
My: Still, though. She likes guys.
Self: She likes some guys, but not like that.
My: Whatever. Does she even know how to be a lesbian?
Self: What the heck do you mean, how?
My: Well, does anybody know she's a lesbian, does she have a bumper sticker?
Self: She doesn't even have a car.
My: She could put it on her briefcase.
Self: Would you get serious?
My: So, what has she done?
Self: She tried to join that online local lesbian community thingamajig.
My: Look how that turned out.
Self: Se can and will do other stuff. She's doing this bloggy thing.
My: So? It's just writing. How does that help?
Self: It helps clear her head, get some perspective. People comment, give her feedback, sometimes even advice.
My: What kind of people?
Self: Nice people, mostly lesbians. Nice ladies and maybe even some gents too.
My: Single lesbians?
Self: Uhm, I don't know. I guess, some. Mostly though I think she reads and comments to and gets comments from coupled / married lesbians.
My: Doesn't that make her sad?
Self: No, on the contrary. She seems very happy. Happy for their happiness. I think it makes her hop...shh.
Self: She's coming.
My / Self: wegottagodon'ttellherwewerehere, OK? Bye!
I talked with YM and YL about taking a family portrait this year. With YM's career and moving aspirations, who knows what next year will bring. This has been such a big year for each of us, big changes. I would love for us to have some kind of commemoration. Trying to coordinate everybody's schedule, though, is going to be tough.
to be continued.
