Blank Stare Mountain

Dad and I sat in the living room watching one of Mom's decorating shows. The only reason I watch it is because I enjoy making sarcastic remarks about the decorator, who I am convinced is gay. No real man would be an interior decorator and wear pink shirts... even I wouldn't do that.

"Maybe he should have been in Brokeback Mountain," I remarked. Dad gave me this blank stare.

"Now, remember," he cautioned in his back-woods Kansas accent, "I haven't been everywhere you have. I have no clue where that is."

It was my turn to stare blankly. "My gosh, you are out of touch with pop culture!"

Another blank stare.

"Brokeback Mountain is a movie about two gay cowboys," I explained. "It was nominated for best film at the Academy Awards, but thankfully didn't get it."

I do find interior design mildly interesting.

I am not fond of pink shirts, however.

God Bless

Matthew, I am not worried about you. I know you like girls. *chuckle*

Haha, that's funny. "I haven't been everywhere you have", lol, that's a good one.

Male interior designers are, um, strange. Espessially the ones that are obessed with shag carpet and vinal walls.

Hey, ignorance is bliss. Your father has the right idea, just ignore pop culture.

A guy wearing pink doesn't necassrily mean he's gay.
I've known a few guys that wear pink on occasion and can get away with it.

Pink and interior decorator?
I'm not going to talk about that.

Sometimes I wish I was ignorant of society.

Fine, Matthew, but it's your loss and someone else's gain.
