I think I briefly mentioned before that I was attempting to get into teaching. Well, as my complete disappearance from my once weekly posting schedule might have told you- the attempt was a success! Or, at least I started my first year teaching. And I’m basically climbing through a pile of work and never have the time to put my thoughts down.
So far, I’m not out to my kids. Not that I don’t ever intend to, but I figured I’d wait until I had a better relationship with them, or got a better hold on the environment I was in to really go for it. Or maybe I’m mildly afraid of a backlash. I think it’s a combination of too many scenarios played out in my head.
Anyways, all I got for you for now is this, from the mouths of babes:
“Miss- you can answer a question for me?”
“Maybe. What’s up?”
“Why are girls so complicated?!”
“If I knew the answer, my life would run a lot smoother.”
“Miss do you have a boyfriend?”
“No sir, I do not.”
“So you’re lonely”
“Nope- those two things don’t always go together, you know”
“Miss- why is it when girls get dumped, they buy a cat and eat a lot of ice cream?”
…maybe he DOES know I’m gay.
