Yesterday, E.S. and I went to Baltimore to visit David and his boyfriend. At one point during the visit, David and I were discussing how much better things would be if we ran the world. E.S. said, “I don’t think that would be a good idea.”
I asked him what he could possibly mean.
“I don’t see any problem with David’s running the world,” he said. “Just you. You’re too punitive and vengeful.”
I fixed him with a gimlet eye and said, “Just you wait. You’ll find out how punitive and vengeful I can be.”
Then, head held high, I turned on my heel and tried to walk through a closed screen door.
Faustus, you are simply brilliant. Thanks for going through my blog yesterday. I don’t know what is wrong but I could not e-mail you ar reply. You e-id is bouncing. Is it an official e-mail ID? Is there another ID which I can use?
I know EXACTLY how you feel. I did the same thing, on Fire Island, at a party consisting of the most attitudinous A-list gays on the Island, while carrying a plate-load of food. Where’s a quick death when you really need one?
Best that we tend to our own gardens then, Candide.
I, too, am punitive and vengeful: I just have better PR at my disposal.
Ah, nothing better then a dramatic graceful exit. 🙂
Over time, I’ve actually fallen in love with your boyfriend. I don’t know his real name, I don’t know what he looks like and I’m not in New York – not even in the US – but I insist that you let me have him.
