Loud Portuguese music in the background. Smells like pork and cold fries. Women in flip flops roam about with tiny plastic glasses of wine.
Male friend I was scared to tell I was gay: "No one expects I'm a smoker."
Me: "No one expects I'm gay. But I am."
Him: "Hmmmm. Wait, what?"(confused/surprised expression)
Me: "I have a girlfriend."
Him: "Oh wow."
Me:"She's soooooo cute."
Him: "I'm not surprised because you are so cute!"
Me: Awww haha thanks. She is the best.
Him: You should have invited her
Me: I was nervous to tell you
Me: I don't know haha
Him: It's totally all good
And then I came home to my mailbox literally full of rainbow balloons and glitter. Literally.
Telling the truth about being gay is the best thing I have ever done in my entire life. Bringing down the walls guys. Bring 'em down.
