It was a funny scene at the dinner table last night when my mom decided to go through the mail. To date my mom is the only person in my family I've come out to but she doubts my seriousness on the subject, thinking maybe I'm just going through a phase (and apparently I've been going through it since I was 13). Well I'm an avid user of Blockbuster online and often have movies coming in and out of the house. Lately I've been nice to my mom and have been renting her movies (mostly Dr. Quinn medicine woman dvds) and she has started assuming that I'm only renting for her. Well her assumption was proven wrong as she opened the envelope to find not Dr. Quinn but instead Queer as folk season 1. Personally I've wanted to watch the series for awhile (I absolutely love Hal Sparks) and Blockbuster online has finally allowed me to do so. The look on my mom's face was priceless as she took the dvd out of its slip and put it back in playing it off as if nothing happened as she shot me a look across the table that no one else saw. I couldn't help but smirk, I knew what just played out, but hey we all know what happens when you assume.
I know I'll eventually have to come out to my dad (not like he doesn't already suspect) but it's easier said than done. I'm not close to him at all and it is clear there is a rift between us. However this has to be done soon if I plan to move forward with my life. I mean I don't want the first time he finds out to be when I bring a guy home, I figure I owe him that at least. It's not like things can get any worse between us, I know that as far as favorite children go I'm at the bottom of the list and he doesn't really try to hide it.
