So, we're invited as a friend of the family to go to a July 4th party. C, the kids and I go. It's at the house of the father of C's friend. She is the only one besides C to know I'm gay at least as far as I know.
I am in the closet to all of these people. They would be shocked if they knew - or so I like to think. Not everyone has been so shocked. But the trouble remains and I sit there in silence.
We got a note on Facebook congratulating us for "an exemplary marriage" Really? Well in some ways ok, but as C joked - should I give the person a call and let them know what is really going on. She won't - the closet again.
It seems we may go out to eat tomorrow night - for Indian. We are hoping to get away at the end of July or in August. But wtf - what do you get for each other when the husband is gay? A romantic evening or getaway just seems to miss the point altogether.
But then it dawned on me. His and her boyfriends! That would fit the bill nicely.
Tomorrow should be interesting. Anniversary. Back to work at a place I really don't want to be. My job search is going poorly. But again the joy is in the journey and I had some of that today. Off to bed.
