Overheard, outside my door

Two of my coworkers, both friendly, well put together women:

"Did you meet Shyniece's brother the other day when he was in town?"

"Oh yeah, he's really nice, funny.
Of course he's doomed-to-eternal-damnation-for -his-homosexual-lifestyle and all, you know."
(entire phrase said as one word)

"Yeah."
(she sighs in agreement)

"What they havin' for lunch today, spaghetti, right?"



"ahem"
(me)

I hope you sucked your spaghetti strands from your fork, one by one, very slowly & nosily.

Some days don't you just wish you could pick up and move to San Francisco and not have to put up with this shit? A friend from the Bay Area asked if the high school my twins went to had an LGBT Alliance group. I just laughed....
