Honesty was important, critical to me. I fretted over whether or not I had lied to him. Strange how society reveres truth then teaches us to lie in order to live with one another. Whatever you want to say about Obama, it is on his watch that gay Americans can finally serve their country open and honestly. But I digress.
Weekends were for working more hours. After high school, there were some college courses here and there. At one point I worked at three restaurants at once, sometimes all in the same day, open here, mid-shift there and close across town, a 7am to 1am kind of day, no problem. I was living with my head in the sand.
Don’t rock the boat, don’t rock the boat…instead I said, “Yeah, he is nice. You would get along well together.” Ugh!!!
