Coming Out

I never thought I'd be doing this on this blog.  In fact, I never gave any thought to doing this at all.  But, apparently, it's time for me to come out of the closet.  Yes, you've read correctly.  I'm coming out.


What lead to this all-important decision?  Had I been unhappy?  No.  Had I been struggling with my identity for a long time?  No.  Did I feel as if I had been living a lie, but was unsure why?  No.  Rather, over the weekend, I received the following in an email from Tony Bigcharles:


"i couldnt care least that we are different, and hold nothing about ur lifestyle (or ur homosexuality) against u."


And there you have it. 


Truthfully, my friends had no idea.  My family had no idea.  In fact, even I had no idea . . . until Tony's email.  

It's been several days now since I found out, and I'm still attempting to process it all.  Trust me when I say this - when you have no idea whatsoever, and then you  suddenly find out, it's a shock (almost as shocking as Tony using the phrase "couldn't care less" - or, at least something close to it - rather than the oft-misstated "could care less").  I don't feel any different than I did last week.  Really, I don't.  Hell, when I got to work this morning, I went on-line and found some screen-caps of a naked Nathalie Emmanuel from a recent episode of Game of Thrones . . . and it made me happy.  So, like, WTF?  That's sort of confusing to me now.  But, perhaps its just a normal part of the adjustment process.

Anyway, there you have it.  I'm officially out of the closet.  Thank you to TBC.  I only hope the rest of you are as understanding.

P.S - a complete trip report (including lots of sweet, sweet video poker porn) will be forthcoming, as soon as I've recovered enough to not feel like I'm dying . . . Which, based on how I currently feel, may be a few days away . . .

  1. I don't know what to say considering that his reads are always spot on... I'll be the first to admit that I envy your lifestyle though, 'lifestyle' meaning the endless trips to casinos, sportsbooks, poker rooms, and sporting events... #twomoremonths :D

    1. Yeah. I guess the fact that I love watching D-Wright field grounders should have been a clue . . .

  5. Don't be so hard on yourself. I'm sure you just haven't met the right woman.

  6. Wow! Maybe I need to do the same. Tony thought I sounded and looked gay when I met up with him in Vegas. It was hard not to laugh, because I don't particularly think of myself as looking or sounding gay. I do take care of myself, and am particularly neat, so by the Jerry Seinfeld definition of gay, perhaps... Now I find myself wondering the same questions! Tony makes an observation that opens Pandora's Box.

    1. Hilarious! Out of curiosity, how did Hero bring that up during an in person conversation? Did he say it casually while you two were eating burgers? Or was it right after you tried to kiss him?

    2. . . . or, maybe it's just a Montgomery County thing!

    3. Meh - I don't think I'm particularly metro, but we were walking through te Venetian and we were talking about why gay people bother him so much - and he exclaimed that I sounded and acted gay... I was sorta speechless, but not wanting to show insult because of the exact point that I was trying to make about why what some people do in their private time bothers him so much, I let it pass. However, I had forgotten about his observation of me before reading your post...

    4. So when we had lunch at that restaurant near Midway Airport, does this mean it really was a date????

  7. Holy Shit! I missed this until late last nite. I guess cuz it posted the day I returned from my Vegas trip from hell, just too much going on since I got back.

    This was highly amusing. I dunno what can top being outed by TBC!

    And then I see anger has taken yet another shot at my manhood, in someone else's blog. Apparently I just don't talk about boobs enough to convince him I like chicks. Weird.

    Anyway, as a further test to your preferences, here's a link to more pics of the gal currently featured on my blog. Enjoy. Let me know if, after seeing this, you still are confused about your lifestyle:

    1. You da man, Rob! You should start a second blog . . . just pictures of random chicks which you may or may not be able to turn into internet celebrities . . .

    2. Yeah, that's not a bad idea. But since I would just be taking pics off other internet sources, I fear I might run into legal troubles.

      Maybe you know a good lawyer?
