Reason #127 Why I like hanging out with my gay friends:

One word:


The scene:

Saturday night Game Night, one girl kicking a lot of trash in the game "Ticket to Ride."

Me: (pointing to the game board) Oh, there's New York. I think I'm going there this summer.

Gay #1: You're going to New York, again?

Me: Yeah, my sister...blah, blah, blah. And--I'm sooooo excited about seeing 9 to 5 the Musical.

Gay #1 (excited): What?! Are you serious?! I love that movie!! I'm totally going to go see that!

Everyone: (continues to talk about the awesomeness of said movie, Dolly Parton, and Broadway in general)

[later in the evening]

Me: Oh, look, I just went to Santa Fe. (bursting into song) Santa Fe, are you there?

Gay #2 (bursting into song): Do you swear you won't forget me.

Both: (continue singing that awesome song from the musical movie "Newsies".)

To summarize: Bursting into song is awesome, especially Broadway musicals, and gay guys tend to be more accepting of and willing to participate in this. I'm just saying...

I wish I had gay friends. I only have one lame hubby who does NOT like musicals at ALL! OK he's not lame, I guess I should be worried if he was all into musicals right? :)Where can I get me some gay friends?

I've always wanted a gay best friend. I guess Tyler will do :) He doesn't particularly like most musicals, but he lets me listen to all the soundtracks on our road trips!

I want to come to one of your parties and have fun bursting into song, too. (After just seeing "The Secret Garden" I have new songs to sing.) When is the next one and I'll put it on my calendar :)
