Penny Karma’s recent post inspired me to share with you the day I outed myself to anboyfriend.
I had just gotten to his place and he and his roommate were watched ST:NG (see, 21 yo boys don’t need to pretend that they don’t like ST:NG; they can be all open about it). And then-BF says to the roommate “That’s The Traveller, right?” referring to an alien creature on the screen. Before I could think, I said “No, The Traveller is more human looking and greyer.” Jaws hit the floor, and I was mortified at what I had just done.
Slowly, the boyfriend and roommate turned away from the screen to look at me as I stared shame-faced into my lap.
“You watch Star Trek??” they exclaimed.
