The Gay part of town...
We heard through the grapevine that there is this whole faction of people who live in our little 'Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea' that won't come down into our neighborhood because, gasp, it's where the 'Gays' hang out! Could it be because we like to dress up in super hero costumes? (It must have been the pink spandex suit that Mira wore on her last day!) Or is it because we are always so damn happy?! It reminds me of the time my kids were watching a television show geared toward really young children. The character was singing over and over, "I'm so happy, I'm so Gay!". Middle daughter Jane turns to her more worldly older sister and says, "Maya, I don't understand what they mean." Maya, matter of factly responds, "Jane sometimes when people use the term "Gay" it means they are Happy! Jane just looks at her and goes, "OH, Okay".
This tells me that times are a changing and awareness levels in our children's lives are much higher than when we were kids. The funniest part of the whole thing is that we are three hetero women who run this business, and while we relish the support of ALL of our customers...it's true we especially value those who know how to love...fully and unconditionally, without prejudice.
Now, you look ready ready for a cup of coffee... Can I get you a stcky bun with that? How do you like my cape?!
UPDATE: Commenter Lorrie from read-n-eat.com says "the Gay part of town is the best part of town!" We think so too! Thanks, Lorrie!
