On Coming Out

Ok, so then does anyone have any announcements to make?

Yes, I do. I'm gay.

Oh. Wow. I was thinking something more work related but, uh, good for you.

Thank you. I know I'm happy all the time, but I felt now was the right moment to declare it to all the world.

Wait, you're announcing that you're happy?

Yes. It's a state of mind, and one that I often find myself in, and I'm proud of it.

I'm sorry, I'm just a little confused here. I thought at first you were trying to say you liked guys.

I do like guys. I like all you guys.

I meant-

Oh, I know what you meant. I was just being a little gay with you.

Now look. This is a serous issue to some people and I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't make light of it.

So what, it's alright for me to be queer, but not strange?
