~Monday~  I brought deviled eggs to work, where it's a food-all-week kind of week.

Someone in my building asked, "Did you make those eggs or did your wife make them?"

"Oh, there's no wife," I said, adding, "I made them."

"Oh, you're not married?"

"No, I'm not. I've had a partner for almost ten years now, though, but we don't live together and he doesn't cook for me."

I was too polite to laugh at the furrowed brow and the gnarled up nose, but enjoyed the polite reply, "Oh."

Don we now our gay apparel. Have a blessed holiday.

Magnificent!
Divorced hetereosexuals run into the same kind of assumptions and awkward moments, I'm finding. I'm still not sure how much fact I'm interested in sharing and am ever impressed with your commitment to honesty.

Tis the Season for...
Hahaha - I had a similar episode at the mall. The helpful sales woman referred to my niece as my daughter. I corrected her. She then asked if I was single. I said yes. She asked if I would like to be fixed up with a girl friend of hers who is a chef. I responded, only if your girlfriend is a man. #GayFavoriteUncle

That's great, Glenn. My usual retort is, "Does she have a brother?" Happy Holidays my friend, and I hope your back is back in business. :-)
