hey, we could have a thing on the side
in the library (where i work) during a very slow afternoon (because the computers were down) i was joking around with a regular library patron . . . the subject got around to our spouses, and i confided that eddy and i were considering separation. he was not comprehending this because he knows that eddy is a pastor, so i whispered, "he is gay." then he was more shocked and said that he didn't believe that people are born that way (he is baptist and 50ish).
then he says, "hey, we could have a thing on the side." i laughed it off, but he was serious. he said that he could get us a nice hotel room. he wasn't getting what he needed, so he got it where he could (eew! - like does he pay for this?)
i don't even begin to think so.
the feminist in me wanted to bitch slap him. maybe i should have. i never got completely angry. but i made it clear (i hope) that it wasn't going to happen.
so it is not okay to be gay, but it is okay to cheat on his wife? he is a reasonably intelligent person. are people this disconnected? or am i just naive?
