You know how conversation often follows a strange, yet interesting path between related topics? Well, some fellows at work and I had one of those conversations this morning at break.
I started it by talking about the new movie, Disturbia, that is playing at our local cinema. You know, the one about the kid under house-arrest who witnesses a murder in the house next door?
That led to talking about wearing ankle bracelets, which led to Martha Stewart, which led to talking about Martha Stewart sucking the blood out of David Letterman’s cut finger on The Late Show. That’s where the conversation took a rather unexpected turn.
Me: “That’s gross. I wouldn’t even do that to (insert partner’s name here).”
Co-worker: “Well, I wouldn’t suck a (insert slang word for male genitalia here).”
Laughter ensued, but not from me. I’m frankly sick of the childish, homophobic remarks that are made to me on a daily basis.
