it's not what you think, but it is funny

my recent facebook status states that i'm bored out of my gourd. a true statement, but somewhat silly, given all that i could be doing. running, swimming, biking, paying taxes, baking a cake... but it's a long weekend... i don't want to take care of the mundane. i want adventure! why didn't i make plans to leave town? go camping? *sigh*

so, as my girlfriend crissy suggested, i'll update my blog.

in my previous post about bubba buffalo, "s" notes in her comment that i seem occupied since new years... she seems to suggest i'm preoccupied with, i dunno, a boy.

no, dear readers, it just ain't so. as much as i'd love to report that i'm in the throws of love in all its radiance... that i'm all aglow with a spring in my step and a song in my heart... nnnno. the only body that keeps me warm at night is my teddy bear and my new dog pepper (who i'll write about later... she is my best source of unconditional love and wet kisses, for sure).

that said, i have entered the dating scene. it seems impossible not to when many of your friends are married. rule of thumb: couples like other couples. and if you're not a couple, and you're friends with other couples, you can bet they'll try to make you a couple real quick. not that i mind... i am definitely not complaining.

so here's a set up story i'll share, because it is so entertaining, and because i know the implicated parties would not object. at least i don't think they would.

two married friends, andré and julia, asked if they could set me up with guillermo weeks ago. at first i objected (as did he, i'm told), but finally did succumb to their excited suggestions. guillermo and i had never met, though i facebook stalked him thoroughly, since he had no security on his profile page. a given.

the four of us met for dinner. super great time... easy conversation... lots of laughing... and then i said something about my dad being an interior designer.

"and yes," i added, "he's gay."

"no way!" exclaimed guillermo, "my dad is too!"

"i'm not being funny!" i retorted, "my dad really IS gay!"

"no, it IS funny," guillermo insisted, "because my dad really IS gay too... AND he's a gynecologist!"

well that did it. i finally met a man who could one up me. we may have to start a club.

happy crissy? :)

Gave me my daily laugh that I have been missing since you stopped blogging. Thanks!

See, this is why blogs aren't completely dead. That was a level of hilarity that could never have been conveyed via Facebook. Thank you, Lauren -- I needed that!
