A Conversation Is A Good Start [Jun. 23rd, 2005|07:53 pm]

Daniel--

Things here at Donny's house have gotten slightly better. I say only slightly 'cause 1) Kelly had to go out of town to see her mother for the weekend and 2) Amanda (that's their oldest kid--she's 12) came into the den where I was working on some school stuff and started talking to me. I think she was talking to me 'cause her mom's gone. But it was still cool. She just started with normal stuff, like "how was you day" and shit like that, and then she asked me, "so...are you really...gay?" It kinda threw me for a moment 'cause we were just having a normal chat and then all of a sudden BAM! But I handled it well, I think.

We had talked a little before her mom went out of town, a few days ago, and I think Kelly got mad at her about it, 'cause when she saw that Amanda was in the same room as me she quickly told Amanda to come and talk to her. Bah! It's so stupid. But today I talked to Amanda and told her that yes I am gay and that just opened up a flood wall! She had so many questions about what it means and what I do (not in a sexual way--she just wanted to know if I do everyday stuff differently) and stuff like that. She was really curiouse. It was kinda cute.

Then later after we had our little conversation, she and her sister Emily were about to play Monopoly and Amanda asked me if I wanted to play too. I was actually busy at the time, but I stopped what I was doing so I could play with them...I really want to get to know my nieces. And the fact that I'm gay shouldn't prevent me from getting to know them. I mean, I'm their uncle! And I definitly don't want them to think that it's me who doesn't want to get to know them. Not that I'm going to rat on their mom, but I want them to know that I'm trying.

cool questions :O) Um, you can respond either way (to me or the characters) Doesn't matter. I normally respond as the author, but if you respond to the characters 1)make sure I know that you know it's fiction (or else I might not respond at at) and 2) I'll probubly respond as the charcter you commented to. Does that make sense?
Hope you enjoy it. I added you back btw.
