I’ll post more when it’s released. But this is another short story, with a very happy, unexpected ending. At least it’s unexpected from my own personal experience as a gay man. But it’s fiction and it’s something I would have liked to see happen just once. I would imagine most gay men would find it unusual, too.
This is also one of those stories that reminds me of a few lines I heard last night in the movie, Life As We Know It. A few neighbors were talking about the main character, played by Josh Duhamel, and this is what the dialogue sounded like…not verbatim.
Neighbor One, a gay man, points to Josh Duhamel and whispers something to the effect of, “There he is. He’s the one who sweats all the time and smells so great.”
Neighbor Two, a straight woman, rolls her eyes and says, “I think he stinks.”
And there you have it. A fundatmental difference that someone else wrote this time, not me.
