Joanne is not so clever sometimes

The problem with having a lot of male friends, even if they are all gay, is that when talking to WC, I seem to only mention men. I need to find an organic way to point out that they are all gay without saying, my gay friend Matty or my gay pothead bartending husband or my gay good friend from college who I rarely talk to anymore. You know, I want it to be more natural. :) This comes up because MP & I had plans to go to dinner. WC stopped by twice (this working late is working out very well for me. I'm getting shit done and WC stops by after hours to chat with me). I had mentioned earlier in the evening I was going to go to dinner with a friend, but was very careful to avoid pronouning Matty. (What? Pronoun is not a verb?) So the 2nd convo it just got too weird to avoid using he, so I did, but couldn't find a way to slip in the gay part. I think if I run into him tomorrow I'll have to say something about Matty spending the whole evening talking about his potential new boyfriend. But WC and I did have a pretty good talk about books and reading. He's read Weaveworld and recommended it highly. He writes. He's funny, and made me laugh. blah blah blah. :)

So just how do you justify claiming that idea as your own, by the way? I totally gave you the "I'm meeting Matty so he can talk about the new cute boy he's seeing" line.

Give me my props!!

Oh, yeah, like you invented it, MP. How do you know she did not receive nearly identical advice from me?

Did she? And did she receive identical advice from you prior to receiving my advice? These questions must be answered.

Yes yes yes. Matthew YOU pointed out that I should've said something like that while we were out at dinner. MICHELLE pointed out that I should've said something like that while we were IMing while watching Prison Break. I was told by BOTH of you but YOU had the opportunity to say that to me BEFORE Michelle. You both have your props. You are both right. This is why Michelle rules my world. :) And he asked me how my dinner was and I said you talked about your new beau because you two are in that totally giddy phase that's annoying to everyone else. ;)

Thanks for the props.

And thank goodness you actually listened to Michelle. (Because I know you never listen to me, other than to pick up strange facts about Shane and the dining preferences of Sparky.)
