My Trip Out

Gay married man coming out story

Quiet, I’m sleeping


Early Saturday morning and this would be our scene, all nestled in our little bed, that would be me on the right (he's not as fat as I make him out to be). Ain't it sweet?

Friend of mine at a major mutual fund in Boston called, not only did he get whacked this week but his wife as well, it's the first time in 30 years he's not had a job. I love financial service, they are merciless when it comes to shooting people. He's a bit devastated. Get used to it, gonna get worse, I'm afraid. I learned to be a mercenary long ago, I take nothing personally.

My older son, straight A student, honors society, Future Business Leader of America, international studies bla bla bla and I found a talking point. Business. He took some training event in how to interview for a job. I'm listening and then tell him it's the biggest bunch of BS I've ever heard. Sit up straight, act interested, be ready to answer droll questions about "what you aspire to be" sort of crap. His eyes are as wide as a saucer as I explain how a business really runs and what they want in employees. We talk for an hour and he laughs at all the silly stories I can recall.

But I'm not thinking about that right now, my toasty brown tiger is purring next to me.


  1. That little rat is so cute! (Talking about the photo). Also, you are such a great dad. I’m always amazed at how good a father you are; you spend so much quality time with your kids. That’s why they are who they are. I have met more than my fair share of divorced men (especially or specifically gay divorced fathers) who spend so little time with their sons and daughters. They let their dicks dictate their lives, and forget they have parenting responsibilities. One of the reasons I love reading your blog is that you are such a great father; I am so impressed.

  2. Well, Chris-man, I am not quite as impressed with you as Don [is he perhaps the same guy in DC who found me so empty and young?], but I love both the rat and the fact that it’s meant to be you, and the fact that you can still laugh at most of the @#$% that comes your way.
    Hats off. Stuart Little has nothing on you, fella.
    Hang in there,

  3. What I’m most pleased with in this post is the common ground you found with your oldest……just keep working on finding that common ground……
