and then she turned into a unicorn

My husband is actually friends with someone that I went to high school with. They ended up being in the same ROTC program in College, and I remember how funny it was when we discovered that “Pinson” (how my husband knew him) was actually who I knew as “Jeremy” from high school. For added irony, Jeremy was actually one of the only people I had a crush on in High School who I didn’t try to pursue. Jeremy also confessed to my husband (in our early dating years) that he had had a crush on me. It was quite comical.

For a while now, Jeremy has been stationed a few states away from us, so we haven’t seen him. He came home this Christmas though, and Husband has been able to hang out with him once, and last night, we all went to dinner together.

During dinner, somehow we started talking about surprisingly gay celebrities. Gerard Butler’s name came up. Jeremy insisted that he had seen a magazine in which he was “coming out”.  I was bummed. Shocked, actually. I sat there and argued with him about it. And then I decided that this is typical, all the super-good-looking guys, the ones you would least expect, turn out to be gay. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t sad though.

So, I dropped my head in sorrow…….and banged it right into a glass on the table.

A hard, thick glass.

One that didn’t move in spite of the fact that I knocked my head into it pretty hard. Both my husband and Jeremy tried really hard not to laugh. Once I started giggling though, they felt that it was safe. I’ll be honest, if my 2 best friends had been with me, they would still be laughing now, a day later, so the 4 or so minutes the guys were laughing was really nothing.

We came home and iced it, but now I have a pretty sizable, BLUE, lump on my forehead.

Just what you want when you have plans for New Year’s Eve.
