- Not Guilty, Jay Z/R. Kelly
- Trying to be health aware, I go to the gym to get a good sweat. Regulars recognize regulars and engage in chit chat in common areas, sports, the weather, current events are the usual fare. In 2012, a gentleman introduced himself after a few casual conversations and wanted to know what goes on being new to the city. I immediately inform him of how limited entertainment is but knowing that my wife has a gaggle of single friends, I steer the conversation in that area. Time goes b, I invite this guy to a few events that the wives clubs and orgs host - no dice. Long story short we have the talk about why he has never accepted any of the invites and he comes out to me. Whoa. An absolute first for me. Did not see it coming, but could not judge. Dude had already seen me walking around the locker room in various states of undress, how could I maturely start acting different because he's gay. That being said, how did I miss it.
- An old friend made the allegation that he has known for years that another old friend had been gay since their childhood. This was the first he had ever mentioned it and I felt a minor bit of outrage that he would make such a statement and dared him to make that statement in front of our mutual buddy. The buddy has always been known as a ladies man by legend and sight, so I instantly denied the allegation but in the light of today's time, can I afford to stand on such absolutes?
