Before I get to my post of the day I just want to remind you that it's that time of year again!!!! The 3rd annual The Diva's Thoughts Top 10 Sexiest Women and Men Alive! I want you all to nominate who you feel is the sexiest man and woman alive. Votes submitted in the comments section will be tabulated and the winner will be announced next week so get to voting!!!
Now, on to the post for today. Several years ago I worked for a small training company as one of a few trainers on staff. We were a pretty close knit bunch. In fact I am still really good friends with one of the other trainers there named K.
Well there came a time when I felt I needed to move on to greener pastures. I found a new job and tendered my resignation.
Fast forward two weeks later and my final day had arrived. My coworkers decided to take me to dinner after work at this little local restaurant as a good bye/celebration. Who am I to say no to a party especially when it's in my honor so you bet I was there with bells on! We had a good time. The dinner was winding down but it was still early in the evening. One of my fellow coworkers named Terry decided she didn't want the party to end and suggested we go to a bar afterward. Of course I was in and so was K so the three of us ventured to downtown Baltimore.
When we walked in I immediately got a weird vibe. There was something different about this bar. Upon further inspection K and I came to realize this was a gay bar! Holy crap! I looked at K and we just shook our heads and laughed. Terry had taken us to a gay bar. I had no problem with that because nobody party like the gays! We had always suspected Terry of being gay and this just confirmed it. Keep in mind now that Terry was still "in the closet" at work as all we had to go on was our gut instincts but we knew.
It was further confirmed when Terry started chasing some chick around the bar. In Terry's defense the girl was cute. So as the night went on I found I was in desperate need of the ladies room so I asked Terry where it was. "I have to go too so I'll just go with you." she says. No problem. You know we girls always go to the bathroom in packs anyway.
We get upstairs to the bathroom and open the door and to my surprise there was only one toilet. The bathroom was like your typical one at home. Terry walks in behind me and shuts and locks the door. Oh oh! I turn around to face her and she says, "Oh yeah, there is only one toilet. You go ahead and use it first and I'll just turn around." Alrighty then. I finished my business and walked over to the sink to wash my hands and as I am doing so Terry starts her business. I kept my eyes as far away from the direction of the toilet as possible.
During this whole time we are making idle conversation. During this conversation she decided THIS was the perfect time to spill her guts and let me in on a little "secret". "I just wanted to let you know that I"m gay." You have me hold up in a bathroom alone and you think THIS is the right time to come out. Oy vey! I act as if I had no idea she was gay. It was an Oscar worthy performance people. Then she proceeds to say, "Don't tell K because I don't want the others at work to know." You have a butch haircut, masculine clothing and you take us to a gay bar and you think K has no idea you are gay? Way to keep it under wraps Terry.
For those of you that are contemplating coming out, it might not be the best time to divulge this information while hold up in a bathroom. I'm just saying.
