Well, progress...

My dad, who has mentioned nothing about my sexuality since this conversation last April finally made a joke about it today. It was so out of left field and unexpected. I was at home and he called to tell me about some good news that he had regarding something. Then he joked that he would keep his mouth shut so that nobody would find out I'm queer. It was kind of bothersome in light of what had just happened with my mom, but it wasn't a big deal. It actually felt like we were making progress since this came up and apparently we're at the stage where we can joke about it. Eh. Kind of how things are going these days. Good and bad moments.

Jokingly said that? If I heard it from my dad like that I think I'd be pretty pissed off - joking or otherwise.

Of course what do I kno - my dad split when I came out so I think that says it all =P

Phunk Factor: Luckily he's pretty easy going.

rlp340: Yes, jokingly. I melted a little inside once he said it because that is a sensitive issue, but that he can make a joke out of it now and move on, fine, I'll look toward the bright side and take it as a good thing.

:-) I think you should definitely take that as a good sign, hehe.

I need to catch up on your blog...I've been kinda busy.
Are you anywhere near Santa Barbara?

Closet: Welcome back! Glad to hear from you. I wondered where you snuck off to. I am a few hours from Santa Barbara.
