I saw the Lovely Bones tonight, great by the way, with a friend of mine. We've known each other for years from church, but we haven't really been close friends, except when we were younger. We've hung out a few times this year and I think we're becoming good friends. Anyway we hung out and talked awhile after the movie and got onto the subject of her high school and then her GSA club. The club kinda dropped off in activity and has been abandoned, which she thought sucked.
Then I asked what the gay to straight ratio was in the club, and she said 1 straight person out of 11 club members. So I joked, 'Oh, you're the only straight one?' She paused and said she put herself down as questioning, which I was NOT expecting, I thought she was just a straight ally. So a few minutes later I interrupted her mid-sentence as we approached her mom waiting in the car (I couldn't drive us because I haven't been driving 6 months yet) and
I said, '---...I am too.'
'You know!...now not a word!'
And we got into the car. She still didn't get it, so I wrote it a notepad I keep in my purse, and she said 'Ohhhh. I got it now.' Then we talked some more at my house while my dad talked to her mom.
And now...I'm surprised I said anything. I wasn't planning on it, but after she said she was Questioning, well it felt instinctive. It was kinda freeing, and nice to know that I knew someone in a similar situation. I say I kinda came out because I just wrote questioning, which is kinda true, because I'm questioning whether I'm just bi or gay, so whatever.
Sorry for the long explanation, I'm kinda a stickler for detail. I feel a little buzzed, which is probably from drinking pepsi with real sugar late at night. :) So...does this mean I'm in the 'I came out to somebody club'? Or the 'I'm not in denial and not completely hiding anymore club'? Lol, night everybody.
