SJP#230: Revisited – Telling Family and Friends

August 27th, 2009 Comments off

How open are you to others about the lifestyle choices you make? Have you told any of your family members? What were their responses?

I had way too much to do yesterday and didn’t get to this.  Between the landlord’s less than twenty-four hours notice about a building inspection and me agreeing to do another post for Eden Cafe (I’ll be posting every Thursday, for those interested.  I know.  You read a lot of me here.  But there, I’m starting at the beginning.  I don’t talk about the beginning much here.  So if you’re interested, check it out.  The contests alone are worth it.  But there’s a crapload of information over there, too.  Scoot!) with less than twenty-four hours to get it in and…  It just wasn’t happening.

I didn’t even finish the club yesterday! Gotta get to that.  Good thing the stuff I let slide was all self-imposed, huh?

Since I just told my mom I’m bisexual, I figured I would revisit this.  Sort of.

The conversation went a little something like this:

“So how close are you to D.C.?”

“Oh.  I dunno.  Somewhere between fifty and a hundred miles.  Why?”

“Because… Well, first let me ask you a question.  How do you feel about same sex marriages?”
