So my best friend's daughter turned 2 this week and we helped her celebrate with a little party at my friend's house. My friend's mother-in-law finds me at every function and chats away. I hadn't seen her in a while, probably since last year's party, so some "catching up" is required. Now my life, for lack of a better word is odd. Some of that I will not be able to share, other parts of it will become very evident over time.
Anyway, I spill it to the MIL. I start telling her about my parents, my kids, work, and my brothers. I tell her that my youngest brother just got married to his boyfriend in Montreal and they now live in London ( as in the UK). Her eyes widen, she grabs my arm, gasps and says " Oh my gosh Heidi, did you know he was gay?!?!?!" I couldn't help but chuckle a bit..: ummm...yes, yes I did, he came out when he was 16...over 8 years ago" She seemed so shocked.
I thought about that scenario, like my brother is running around dating women and then just up and marries some random guy in Canada? Too funny! She just cracked me up.
That just opened a whole topic in what my parents think and so on and so on. I told her we love his husband. My parents have always been cool with that, sheesh...and if not they had a long time to get used to it.
I can't wait to hear if she talked to my friend about the revelation.
