My old friend Mic , who moved to San Francisco 20 years ago, came for a visit.
We spent some time at the scene of our old sins, Paddy O'Tooles.
His is an interesting story.
He's gay, but God love him, a Republican for some strange reason!
He has a room mate who got pregnant and named him as the father on the birth certificate.
They raise their boy together in the most traditional family you could ever imagine, except they sleep in seperate beds and Dad goes out once in a while.
His very conservative mom and dad have his son's pictures hanging with all the grandkids (yes they know)
A love story.
Now here's the funny part.
Mic and I were real close friends
I was the only one who knew he was gay.
Now, Tom and I have never been jealous of each other. He is too gentle and I am too giveashitless for that.
But Mic and I spent A LOT of time together.
I said,"you gotta tell him"
"I'd hate to break up your marriage"
Tom took a deep breath.
Mic said,"But I am real attracted to you"
Tom's expression was priceless!
