One Big Homo-geneous Family

| Working | June 1, 2012

(While standing around talking with a group of coworkers, the topic of marriage comes up. Since one of the women always picks on me for being engaged for over six months, I decide to share some news with her. Note: I’m a big butch and most people correctly assume I’m not straight upon meeting me.)

Me: “Hey [Coworker #1]! We finally set a date! October 14th!”

Coworker #1: “So you’re going to New York?”

Me: “Or D.C. It just depends on what we can afford.”

Coworker #2: “Oh, are you from up north?”

Me: “No, I’m from Louisiana, but—”

Coworker #1: “[My name] is gay!”

Me: “Yeah, so I can’t get married here. That’s why we have to travel.”

Coworker #2: “Huh. Oh hey, I know someone who’s gay! [Random name]! Do you know him?”

Me: “…No?”
